50th anniversary of Rufford Printing Company

On the 1st January 1970, I started Rufford Printing Company. I bought an Adana 8×5 Handpress, a few cases of type, cleared my mums Kitchen Table and started printing.
About 18 months previous to this, on 13th August 1968, at around 8pm, I fell from a hammock in Rufford Park resulting in total paralysis from the upper chest downwards and life in a wheelchair. A condition which is permanent.
This video is the abbreviated history of my journey, it demonstrated how printing really saved my life.
