Mackenzie Printery at the Marshville Heritage Festival
The Mackenzie Printery and Newspaper Museum, with its satellite printing shop, took part in the annual Marshville Heritage Festival in Wainfleet, Ontario. The group showed off its vintage letterpress printing technology to hundreds of festival visitors.
The event also featured a classic car show, a Town Criers contest, live demonstrations of a blacksmith shop, and numerous musical guests. Each year the event draws close to 25,000 visitors.
Below are some pictures of this year’s demonstrations by the Mackenzie Printery volunteer staff. Photographs are courtesy of Denis Cahill.
