The end of an era: My last dummy page, 1989

I drew this up for the world news page of the Manawatu Standard on February 25, 1989, before the switch to computer technology. The compositor would refer to this while making up the page on "the stone" (which was a display board, rather than a slab of "stone", after the demise of hot-metal technology in the late 1970s).
