A: Brownsville, Texas, United States
On September 31, 1866 the publishers of the Weekly Ranchero newspaper in Brownsville, Texas, a town on the southern tip of Texas on the border with Mexico, issued Volume 1, Number 1 of their new weekly newspaper. They featured on their front page their new R. Hoe & Co. Railway Newspaper Printing Machine. This Hoe press was crank driven, and could print 1200 impressions per hour. That was apparently fast enough to supply copies for the small population in Brownsville at the time.
