I didn't realize that photo-typesetting went back that far. When did it make it into, say, newspapers? I remember a paperboy tour of the Dallas Morning News in the late '60s, when they were still using Linotype machines. My first reporting job, in Athens, Texas, in 1977, was the first time I came in close contact with a photo-typesetter (and with computers that would eat stories you'd cranked out on deadline).
