At the place where I once work, these pictures were each a member in a
directory file with a record length of 133 chars. The first character of
each line was the carriage control. For each printed line of Mona it may
have taken 4 lines from the data file. We used iebgener to print it. To
recreate it, you need a printer that uses the carriage control otherwise
you are out of luck. Oh yeah, the 4 lines would be printed on top of each
other, before advancing one paper print line.
