Cabinet, or rack, provides storage of type cases and angled positions on top to accommodate typesetting. Capital letters were stored in separate cases. During typesetting, these cases would be placed above, while the remaining letters would be in the case below. This is why we call them lowercase letters. The case is currently part of the Print Shop at History Park.
