This souvenir folder of Henry Ford, the Ford Plant, and its allied industries is a fantastic historical document. There are 20 panels of actual photographs and accurate drawings of this industrial kingdom. At the time of this publication, Ford employed 50,000 employees at the Michigan plant alone as is shown in a photograph of their assemblage. Also depicted are: the First Ford Factory located at Bagley Ave.; the Home of the Ford Motor Co. in 1903; the first Ford car; workers on the assembly line; 7,000 chassis (a day's output); Home of the Henry Ford Trade School; the motion picture laboratory film drying room; the meat market in Highland Park; the Henry Ford Hospital; the Lincoln Unit of the Ford Motor Co.; the hydroelectric plant located in Phoenix; the ore unloading plant located on the River Rouge; the blast furnace; a diagram with labels mapping the entire operation on the River Rouge; the Ford Coal Mine camp; and the D. T. & I. Railroad of 60 cars of coal from the mine. An artist's rendering of the Highland Park complex at Detroit and an image of Henry Ford himself. This folder was published by the United News Co. of Detroit, Mich. I did not find a date of publication. I believe the images will give you an idea of the age. Basically this folder explains and demonstrates the early success of the Ford Motor Company. Perhaps business owners of today should take note.
