Haldimand Press history on display in Fisherville

FISHERVILLE—The Fisherville Lions hosted an open house on Sunday, December 5, 2021 featuring a collection of artifacts from the former Cayuga office of The Haldimand Press. Guests were especially interested in viewing the 1905 Golding Pearl printing press, which is shown being operated above left by Club President Walt Schaeffer. Watching the process is Olga Luehmann of Caistor Centre, a letterpress printer who helped make the printing press operational for the open house.
