On July 3,1886, the German clockmaker, Ottmar Mergenthaler demonstrated the first Linotype Type Casting Machine at the New York Tribune in New York City, USA. In front of a gathering of printers, newspaper men and reporters, the machine was first put in to production, casting lines of printable type for the Tribune. A reporter asked what the new machine was called and Reid replied, "Why yes, we do have a name. We are going to call it the Linotype."
