This is a Curtis & Mitchell 6x9 Columbian #2 Rotary. Made in Boston, Mass. between the years
of 1878 to 1891. The first two pictures below is as we found it, and where it had been for the last 50 years. It was in the
front office of the Cuba Journal Print Shop -- Cuba, ILL. It was believe to be last used in the 1980's. One of the selling points of
a C&M press was the dwell time of the platen being open was much longer than any other press. In the picture you can see the side
draw arm has a large slot in it, this was how they made for the longer dwell time.
