Gordon Press

1870's "Franklin" style G.P. Gordon Platen Press

Susan's father was primarily a photographer, but did his own printing as well as some work on the side. He began printing with this press in 1948.
George Phineas Gordon built it circa 1870-1890

This press is in very good condition and needs only some cleaning and oiling and optimally, a treadle instead of the single-speed motor.
