Aluminum Extrusion

5000 ton Horizontal Extrusion Press circa WW2 - Gloucestershire Archives

A comment on daily timewaster got me to wondering when aluminum extrusion was first realized. The answer is 1904. No pictures of that one, but I found this curious illustration. It appears to have been taken from a photograph and then all the parts of the picture that were not the machine were faded.
