The Cincinnati Type & Print Museum is creating a database of printing presses that were manufactured in Cincinnati, and have put out a call for information on existing presses made by any of the following companies:
Cincinnati Type Foundry – 1817 to 1892
C. Foster & Brother – 1849 to 1852
- James D. Foster & Co. – 1853 t0 1858
- W. T. & S. D. Day & Co. – 1858 to 1864
Dickinson & Williamson – Circa 1833 to 1834
Franklin Type Foundry – 1854 to 1892
They would also be very interested to learn about any other Cincinnati-based press manufacturers that you might know of.
Full details of the project and the presses they have tracked down so far on the Cincinnati Press Project website.
