Pictures I took at our very cool visit to the place that the Los Angeles Times newspaper is produced. 🙂
This is an old printing press from the late 1800s.
It was powered by water coming down this clear tube and turning the wheel.
This is the back where paper goes in.
This is where the new newspaper comes out.
Paper coming off the ink-covered plate.
Some ads in a paper printed in 1881.
And this is going in to the facility that makes the LA Times newspapers.
The rolls of paper they use are HUGE.
These “robots” carry the paper rolls around the place.
Stacks and stacks of paper!
This is the room where they make the plates. Plates are what they now use instead of setting metal letters into a frame like they did in olden times. Once the news info comes in to this plant, the plates for the day are created there.
Famous front pages.
Now, the ink!
And these are the huge machines that take the paper, the ink, and the plates, and create our newspaper!
Just look at the papers wrapped around and coming off these machines!
It’s not just the LA Times that’s printed here. These are some other papers printed at this location.
And lastly, the big room where the newspapers are packaged and set, ready to be delivered.
…using this machine.
If you don’t read the newspaper, you’re uninformed. If you read the newspaper, you’re misinformed.
Here is a photo I took tonight, of the biggest Supermoon of this year. (There was already one Supermoon in July, and one more is coming on September 9.)
Certain moons are called “supermoons” because, on their orbit around Earth, they come closer to the Earth and appear bigger and brighter than normal. Here’s more from NASA.
