Doves Press type recovered

Design­er Robert Green has been try­ing to recov­er the Doves Press type, thrown into the Thames at Ham­mer­smith Bridge by T J Cob­den-Sander­son in 1913, after a dis­pute with his for­mer busi­ness part­ner Emery Walk­er. Green has been able to recov­er about 150 pieces of type (the rest have been cov­ered on con­crete dur­ing repairs to the bridge) which have been loaned to the Emery Walk­er Trust, and can be seen in Walker’s house. You can find the sto­ry on the BBC web­site.
