Notes: "Even before any printing apparatus had been assembled, Will Lockwood's press had a pressmark, designed by that Oklahoma printer, and a name, suggested by the late Will Ransom. Tho the plans for housing the press in a frame building beside a creek fell thru, the name not only describes the intended site, but alludes to 2 other respected water-side presses." © James Lamar Weygand
