Photos from the Basel Mission collection, USC

Holy time machine! Here are actual photographs of press workers in Mangalore, Karnataka; photos archived in the University of Southern California’s Basel Mission collection.

In the first image, we see the first New Testament printed in the Tulu language, printed lithographically. Next, an image of proofreaders, a bible storage room, a large room of type compositors, pressmen, and a Linotype machine operator. Many more images can be found at the site. Take a look – it’s amazing!
