The Olde Time Print Shoppe has presses, linotype and other hotmetal typesetting machines that produced the newspapers, books and magazines of yesteryear. Gulgong’s first newspaper was printed in 1872 on our Albion hand press (picture top left) which was manufactured in 1869 by Harrild & Sons in England. These historic machines are greatly sought after by collectors and form one of the few working displays in Australia
