Not Exactly a Laptop

In 1754 James Parker established the first permanent printing press in New Jersey. You can read about him here if you are so inclined (scroll down to where it says "First Permanent NJ Press" I'm fairly certain the site below is a reproduction.

But it does have some old printing presses in it. And also cases of type. Some filled with the actual old fonts. As the kids looked at the names of the different fonts on the drawers - they realized this was the same as picking a font in Word. Only - a lot more work.
