Variants of California Job Case Lay

Some Australian and New Zealand variants of the normal U.S. California Job case lay, showing the rows/columns most affected. The Otakou Press lays are in the Press Room of the University of Otago Central Library, Dunedin in February 2017. The Otakou Cal Job lay is the one used for most of the Press's cases. The Otakou Job lay is only the one case. The other four Otakou lays are layout sheets on display, but not necessarily in use, the fourth one being in their Summer School 2014 booklet. The New Zealand Printing Museum lay is as shown on the Museum's website in 2015. The Cobblestones Early Settlers Museum lay is as displayed in the Printing Works in 2015. The Melbourne Museum of Printing lay is as displayed in 2014, but possibly dates from before 1999. The Western Australian Education Department lay is shown in their course booklet of the 1960s.
