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).

Enjoy!

Trent,
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,

Rob
