Pressman’s Hat

This piece about newspaper pressmen during the glory days of the newspaper business includes an illustrated guide to making a pressman's hat.  Way cool.

I also like the quotes about newspapers:

"Editor: a person employed by a newspaper, whose business it is to separate the wheat from the chaff, and to see that the chaff is printed." – E. Hubbard.

"I am unable to understand how a man of honor could take a newspaper in his hands without a shudder of disgust."- Charles Baudelaire.

"Advertisements contain the only truths to be relied on in a newspaper." - Thomas Jefferson.
