A little history lesson! 'Mavis' my Golding Pearl Old Style #3 was manufactured in 1893, Boston, USA. It was shipped to Sydney where it remained until I dragged her over to Perth. I thought it would be nice to research the events that were shaping Australia during the 1890's, when my little press would have been 'brand new' and in full operation!
