The Skyscraper Museum is devoted to the study of high-rise building, past, present, and future. The Museum explores tall buildings as objects of design, products of technology, sites of construction, investments in real estate, and places of work and residence. This site will look better in a browser that supports web standards, but it is accessible to any browser or Internet device.

Linotype video (1937)

Excerpt from "Typesetting: Linotypes," c. 1960

In this vocational film, viewers are taken on a tour of the stages of the typesetting process, from entry, forging of the slug, layout, and proof inking; and how the keyboard, matrices, elevators, crucible, and distributor all work together to create a line of type.
