An Addressograph is an address labeler and labeling system. In 1896 the first U.S. patent for an addressing machine, the Addressograph was issued to Joseph Smith Duncan of Siour City, Iowa. The original company which manufactured the Addressograph, Addressograph International merged in 1932 with American Multigraph of Cleveland, Ohio to form the Addressograph-Multigraph Corporation manufacturing highly efficient  addressograph and duplicating machines. These machines were used to produce dog tags during WWII. This machine was salvaged from the circa 1935 Peacock Laundry of Salem, Virginia. The model number on this machine is 6183, Serial #437292. We believe the laundry used the machine to produce customer name plates to mark their clothing. The laundry is featured in season 8, episode 7 of the DiY network show "Salvage Dawgs". Weight: 210 lbs., 43.25H x 18.5D x 34.5W
