Those are really interesting. I never realized how much of that was done by hand. Even up to 1938.

For the 1938 perforator picture, it appears that U.S. Scott # C23 from 1938 is being perforated as panes of 50 (5 x 10) stamps.

Interesting to note how natural light played a larger and larger role in illuminating the production floor.
