The marvelous Addressograph!

The World Book Encyclopedia.  Chicago:  Field Enterprises Educational Corporation, 1958.
How addresses were put on business envelopes in the 1950's and 60's.  To understand how it worked, see the Wiki article.  The company that made these machines soldiered on until 1982.   Then the computer started saving the labor of retyping.
