St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Missouri, January 21, 1910

 

Typewritten fonts by Murielle Rouleau (top, using only m) and Julius Nelson (bottom, using X and _). From Today’s Secretary 1950-1951. Scanned by Marcin Wichary.

From 1882, these graphics were made with 13 symbols (shown at the bottom). This is a modular type called Combination Border No. 16, by Bruce’s New York Type Foundry. A little bit like PETSCII, a little bit more like alpha blox.

Found by Pinwheel Press & thanks to Marcin Wichary for the tip.
