Reciprocating bed on a Vandercook?

vcook.jpgIn this photo from a Vandercook & Sons exhibit at the American Photoengravers Association convention there is a press shown with a reciprocating bed. Is this in the era of the Hacker buyout, or did Vandercook make a press with a travelling bed?

    I think the press on the far left is a Hacker “No.7”:https://vandercookpress.info/hacker.html#7. The middle press looks to be a Vandercook “232”:https://vandercookpress.info/years35-53.html#223p, which was introduced in 1937, and the press on the right is a “427”:https://vandercookpress.info/years35-53.html#427.
