In the composing room of the Daily Mail, night editor S W G Horniblow (smoking, centre) and Charlie Wilkie (the printer of the paper, left) look on as a newspaper man locks the blocks of type and illustrations into place on the metal frame or 'form', which will be inked and used to print the newspaper page. The form is the same size as the page to be printed. The time is 10 past 10 at night.
