Linotype broadsides honor this famous machine

Marlan Beilke (known in letterpress printing lore as Linomarl) paid tribute to his beloved Linotype machine with a pair of broadsides. Workiing in his Amador City, California letterpress shop, Mr. Beilke became famous for his many printed books and broadsides. I have a few copies of two of his Linotyupe broadsides. When they are gone, they are gone.
