Nels Maher Print Shop

Our Print Shop is named in the memory of a friend to Grey Roots, Nelson Maher. Nels worked for what added up to hundreds of hours - first to restore the equipment, then to set it up so that it could be viewed, and finally in giving tours, interviews and demonstrations.

The Grey Room
