'The Saguache Crescent': America's Last Linotype Newspaper

The weekly newspaper "The Saguache Crescent" in Saguache, Colorado, was founded in 1867 by Otto Mears. Like then, the newspaper is still being made today by using a Linotype type casting machine and traditional printing methods, which makes it unique since most newspapers use modern production methods. Dean Coombs's family has owned the newspaper since 1917, and he has been its publisher for 37 years.
