I have enjoyed a career in the production segment of the newspaper industry; going from handset type and hand-fed presses to Linotypes, to the first photo typesetters, to computerized pagination, and now to the Web and its related programs. So, every few years the technology (and the job) transformed. I have pleasant memories of traveling to, and working at many of the Seaton Publishing newspapers over 59 years; and enjoying the good people that were employed there. Just one of my souvenirs is a type case drawer from the original Deadwood Pioneer-Times at Deadwood, SD.
