"In Darmstadt Haus für Industriekultur they have a wonderful Liberty press!! I will send you the pictures with this mail. It is a very early press."
The Liberty press is located in the "Haus für Industriekultur," a department of the Hessisches LandesMuseum Darmstadt (Federal State Museum of Hesse). The "Haus" is at a different location (Kirschenallee) than the main museum (the Friedensplatz). They have many machines — 7 handpresses (including Stanhope, Columbian, and Dingler), 6 cylinder presses — and really nice people.
