Globe Presses in Toronto 1939

Toronto. These are the presses that printed my favourite newspaper in 1939. The image is from the Globe archives and details are from an article in Monday’s Globe by Shelby Blackly.

The Presses (and the Globe and Mail) were located at 140 King St West in Toronto. In 1977, the Globe moved along to 444 King St West, the old Toronto Telegram building (the Telly ceased publication a few years earlier). Around that time, The Globe went to electronic type-setting and use of regional third-party printing.

To this day, the Globe is electronically set in Toronto and files are sent by satellite to printing presses located in various regions of Canada etc. for faster distribution.
