Notes: "Tho Joseph Ishill started his press in 1916, it was not until four years later that it assumed its present name. It comes from the Baltimore Oriole, not any baseball team; the printer is not a baseball fan. Both of his devices were made for the press by Louis Moreau of Paris." © James Lamar Weygand
