Cadets visit Herald-Leader pressroom, 1950

Posted on February 24, 2019 | in Uncategorized | by

This group of cadets from Millersburg Military Institute came to Lexington in February 1950 for an inspection of the Herald-Leader newspaper publishing plant. At that time the Herald-Leader was on Short Street directly behind the old Fayette County Courthouse. They spent some time in the pressroom, which was in the basement of the building, to observe the placing of cylinder plates on the press and noted the high speed with which the papers rolled from the folder.
