Howard Iron Works brings presses from the past to Print World
TORONTO—Prepare to experience printing history at Print World, as the Howard Iron Works Museum and Restoration Facility, will be displaying some of its restored iron and platen presses. The Mississauga-based museum was founded in 1967 and is the brainchild of Liana and Nick Howard of Howard Graphic Equipment Ltd. The industry veterans have managed to collect materials and equipment from 1839 to 1950.

Howard Iron Works will have six presses on display during the trade show: an 1846 Super Royal 4-toggle press by R. Hoe & Company; an 1883 Alexandra press by W. Notting; an 1840 Imperial Iron Press by Cope Sherwin & Co.; an 1870 Albion Improved by Hopkinson & Cope; a late 1800’s Columbian Iron Press by Woods & Sharwoods and a 1919 Jobber #7 Platen Press by Golding.

Visit booth 900 to get a glimpse of the collection.
