I looked it up, yes. But the wiki page, a ways down, says:

"seeing and hearing Linotype machines which slowly converted ‘molten lead 
into front pages that required two men to lift them.’  I had to chuckle 
about that because it brought up a memory from my childhood, 1047 or so. 
Those old frames were 4" bigger than todays papers, 2 pages wide, and 
probably weighed well over 250 lbs loaded and ready for the press.

When I was in my early teens, and helping out in the darkroom at our 
local weekly paper, it only took one man to pick up that frame of 
Linotype, carry it out thru the back door to a shed over his press and 
place it on the bed of that press.

his name was John Hines, stood about 6'5" and around 275 lbs, owned the 
paper & job shop and only wore white shirts to work and never once did 
he get any ink in them.

One of the local brickyards supervisor guys was famous for a foul mouth, 
and John and his missus was in a benefit bridge game during an Old 
Settlers Re-union, & this guy came to a position behind Johns wife, with 
every third word being a foul word. John told him to watch his mouth, he 
replied "and what the F--k are you going to do about it?

Johns butt never cleared the folding chair he was sitting on as he 
reached over his wife's head across the table and open handedly slapped 
him cold on the floor. The whole fire hall gave him a hand when he stood 
up, picked him up and laid him gently on a park bench just outside the 
front doors.  End of problem.

Thanks for the trip down memory lane.
