History
1988 was a very important year in the history of the museum.

This was the year when the Graphic Workers’ Union in Helsingborg celebrated its 100th anniversary and the Types, Printing and Typographers exhibition, produced by Riksutställningar (Swedish Travelling Exhibitions), was held in the old rectory at Fredriksdal Museums and Gardens. The exhibition, originally designed by Göran Carlsson, was adapted to the rectory premises by Henri Paul Amat. Other printing equipment and exhibits, borrowed from local printers and from the printing department at Rönnowska School, broadened the scope of the exhibition.

Bertil Hagberg, then a typographer, and Stig Wall, a shop steward, were in charge of this part of the Union’s jubilee celebrations. It was also their idea to man the working parts of the exhibition. The five oldest printing works in Helsingborg were invited to participate in the exhibition, held in the summer of 1988: Allers, Bergstens Tryckeri, Helsingborgs Dagblad, Helsingborgs Litografiska Anstalt and Schmidts Boktryckeri took part under the guidance of Gideon Beil.
