Year of the Pig

I came across this old photo recently, which dates to about 2000 or 2001. In it, friend of the press Hudson Trenholm regales Gary Dunfield with one of his shaggy dog stories in our old printshop at One Church Avenue. Gary is using the remelt furnace (between them) to melt old lead slugs into molten metal so that he can pour them into moulds (on the stacked pallets) and make ‘pigs’ or bars of type metal. Both Hudson and Gary have shorter hair these days.
