There have been some great discussions recently on the Models K, NR&S Fords. Several times the managers of various Ford Branches have been mentioned. It is always nice to know who we are talking about. Please find below a scan of the 1908 Ford Branch Managers from the July 1, 1908 issue of Ford Times (page 25).
Hi Trent - It's good to see you on the Forum again!
Have you done any Ford research lately?
Thanks for posting the photos. It is always great to read your thoughts and research.

Thanks. Each manager has a unique and interesting history.
Block has been intriguing for me to follow. He shows up in early 1906 demonstrating a Ford Model N at the Boston show (a prospective customer writes a letter to Henry Ford about the demonstration Block gave the prospect).
Then a few months later Block is driving and racing a Model K and a passenger is killed in the accident. The story receives nationwide media attention. I am surprised that following the accident and media attention Block still rises to the lofty position of Branch Manager.
Thank you for posting,
