"yeloting" query

Strangely enough, there seems to be no "map" of the Linotype 90-key keyboard available on the Internet. There is a photo, though, at
but not very clear, at least not on my screen. But the first two vertical lines at least can be completed: the well-known mysterious words ETAOIN SHDRLU used by typographers to fill out lines by running their fingers down the rows.
I hope someone can find a keyboard map and put it out on the Net - I am certain that it could help in many cases, if not in this.
