Edison/Ford part II

I have some pictures that I wanted to post from the visit to the Edison/Ford Estates that did not fit in the last post. There are some from Edison’s botanical laboratory and some from the museum. These two men have had a significant impact on not only this country but the world. Edison still holds several records on US patents issued and, of course, Henry Ford put an automobile in every garage.

Edison was involved in study of all kinds of things throughout his life. Even in his last years, he continued his botanical studies at his winter home lab. The museum covers many of his projects that made him famous including his moving picture projects. He was a friend and adviser to George Eastman of Eastman Kodak fame. There is a picture of his wife Mina on her wedding day that particularly interested me.

Anneke could not resist posing with Mina and Henry Ford.

What was your favorite Ford Car?
Was Flat Stanley with you at the car museum?
What house did you like better, the Ford or Edison house?

Mrs Baxter's class:

We liked the Model T the most. It is perhaps the most famous of the Henry Ford cars.

We thought that Stanley might be bored by the museum and so he stayed home.

We liked the Edison house best because of the items still there from when Thomas Edison was living there. He was a very important person in our national history.
