Dow Jones & Co. Wall Street News Ticker Machine

A vintage 1940s news ticker produced by the venerable financial institution Dow Jones & Co., publishers of the Wall Street Journal. The freestanding machine, measuring approximately is constructed of both metal and glass, and features the company name on the front ("Dow-Jones/The Wall Street Journal"). Ideally, especially in terms of aesthetics, the machine includes the original, wooden Dow Jones clipboard, which hangs from its appropriate hook on the front. A slot for scissors (to cut the teletype) is attached on the side. The machine also displays a roll of original paper bearing the Dow Jones watermark. The machine is complete with its original glass-covered lid. While rare today, in years gone by these machines were found in every newsroom and important financial institution in the country, reporting the up-to-the-minute late-breaking news in an era long before television, cable, and, of course, the internet. The machine is in non working condition but retains all its original workings extra roll of paper, business card of salesman, and original paperwork. The scissors are missing!
