A few years ago I had found a copy of "Ford to Frisco" It is a 45 page journal published in 1915 that documents the trip of a Pharmacist from Metropolis Ill to San Fransisco for the 1915 San Francisco Panama Pacific International Exposition. The book describes in great detail the nature of travel when our cars were new and what people were like. The author describes his every day and expense.
I found it to be fascinating, and like the accompanying period photos. If I recall, the Author met Henry Ford when he made it to his destination. It's been a while since I read it, but I thought it was very cool.
I've been considering trying to get this book reproduced so other can enjoy it. But, before I send it to a book scanner and one of those small publishers, I'd love to be sure some people might be interested in it before I start doing it.
Please let me know!
I'd be interested in a copy. Possibly 2.

So Richard, Why not just photo shoot or scan the booklet and share it here unless you need to make a business out of it??
Yes, me too.

I'll be interested in a copy.
I would also be interested in a couple of copies. This would be an excellent book to sell in the MTFCA museum.
I would like a copy of the reprint for my collection.

Add would like ot have one as well. Thanks John
Please add me to the list.
Thank you all for speaking up. Seeing that people would be interested in this, I'll see what I can do to get it reprinted. Anyone else who is interested, please post so I have a rough idea of how many I should look to reprint.
I don't know about others but I could be just as interested in a digital copy as a paper one. Might get both if that was an opportunity and depending on price.
Sounds like a great read to me. I would like one. Keep us posted please.
Wouldn't a dvd be cheaper/easier? I'm interested eather way.
Here is a little blurb about the book:
I too would be interested in it.
Richard, Count me in for one, thank you...Rick
I am interested.
Please add me to the list.
Please add me also!
It looks like I am going to be able to do this. I spoke with a few companies and may be able to have this out in a few weeks. It looks like the book will be around $10.00.
Does this work? The binding will be a "perfect" style binding as opposed to 3 staples that are used in the original. It should make the book more durable and enjoyable.
Count me in too, please
