Saraswathivilasam Press (Attakulangara), Bhaskara Press (Pazhavangadi), Keralodayam and Western Star (Cantonment), Malabar Mail and Shanmukhavilasam Press (Puttenchanda) were some of the prominent names. ‘Subodhini Press’, another name mentioned is seen marked against Chala, where the press may have operated in the early 20th century. A search for the history of Subodhini Press ended in Nenmanasherri Bungalow (better known as ‘Kukie’s Holiday Inn’), a charming old house, located in Luke’s Lane, near G.P.O. He established the Subodhini Press in 1905. But thanks to Elizabeth (1881-1953), Koshy’s widow, Subodhini Press continued to function successfully.
