THE OLD SCHOOL PRESS

A photograph from Harry Carter, Typographer.

Carter went up to Queen's College, Oxford in 1919 to read Modern History. This photograph, taken in 1922, shows him amongst fellow members of the Pater Society, a literary society that met to hear and discuss papers.

After Oxford, he went to Lincolnís Inn where he was articled to a solicitor. It was during the short time he worked as a barrister that he developed a passion for the subject that was to be his life's work: printing and its history.
