It is not the smell, but the sounds that I remind. I consider the sound of a Lino under a skilled operator to be pure music.

I was offered a chance to buy an Intertype (a Lino clone) about 15 years ago. Alas, I had no place with the 9 foot headroom the machines needed. I still rue the day. It might have been the last Lino type of machine in London, Ontario. After they called me, they called the scrap metal dealer.
