Ludlow/Hammond Hot Metal Paste-Up
The material here is literature provided to sales representatives to help them sell Ludlow products in support of the system of "hot metal paste-up." These include a Hammond Machinery Builders bulletin about the system and a set of photographs of the system in operation at the Ogden Standard Examiner.
The material here involves the Elrod as much as the Ludlow Typograph. It also shows the Ludlow Shell-Hi Slug Shear.
