A friend sent these to me and I thought Ford fans would like to see some history of the Ford plant over 100 years ago. Second last card, 24, is interesting with a number of stats regarding production. Times have certainly changed. OSHA inspectors of today would be astounded!
Thanks. Amazing

Very cool, thanks for sharing. I love these "25/50/100 years ago" retrospectives. The Wall Street Journal ran a special insert on Monday with select articles from the past 130 years. Really gives perspective on the issues of today. You know the old saying, "Plus ca change, plus ce'st la meme chose."
