  • Great analysis.

    Until the 1960s, The Missourian's press room had a huge window on the same wall as the mural. People would park and watch the presses rolling.

  • An addition to list for your reference. My grandfather is the person sitting behind Mr. Naeter at the Linotype machine. His name was Ernest Ferguson and he worked at the Missourian for years. He and my father were both skilled Linotype operaters. He moved to Cape from Fredricktown where his brother owned the local newspaper there. He built a house on Cape Rock drive and lived there until his death in 1966. I remember very little about him but know that he was very proud of his trade and his work at the paper.
