In my youth (early teens!), I was bought an old Adana 5x3 printing press. I loved the process and the smells, and was soon printing visiting/business cards and personal stationery for family and friends.
After a short while I outgrew the Adana and found and restored an old Cropper Peerless 11"x7" No 2. Treadle Platen.
Why I didn't take any photos of these I really don't know and regret.
Well life did it's thing, and I sold the presses to buy a Triumph 650cc TR6 Saint ex-police motorbike.
Some several decades later the letterpress bug bit again, and I found this small Ajax press on an auction site in Scotland.
With the chase still full of type from it's last print job, and various bits of paper that came with the press I discovered that this was originally bought just after WWII by a Vicar who used it to print his sermons as well as various little print jobs for the community - loads of Old English type came with it.
I've stripped it right down, it needs some new springs, there is a bent bolt that needs careful heating and straightening, but it's all there - time to get to work.
