Caption on verso reads, "This is a closeup of the Bliss press. In the lower left hand corner is shown a part of the pan containing floated alumina for coating the blanks. Directly above are 7 coated blanks ready to be placed in the cups on the turntable. The plunger on the press is almost in the down position and directly at the bottom of it are the two top dies. Directly underneath are two small hoses which blast air against the dies to remove loose particles of body. The guard has been lifted. While the guard is in this position the press cannot be started."
