When I saw this photo for sale on ebay, I could not resist buying it.
A label on the reverse side of the photo states: quote:
"Henry Ford Honoured on 75th Birthday Detroit Mich.:
Henry Ford is shown above with William Knudsen, President of General Motors, right, at dinner party given the automobile pioneer on his 75th birthday July 30, by 1300 citizens of Detroit." unquote.
Label dated 7-31-38.
I just wanted to share it with you.
Wow! Thank you.
This is a really great picture. Henry looks very young here, much less than 75. He even has some color in his hair.
That is a neat picture, Thanks for sharing it.
"He even has some color in his hair"-Keith...Well Keith, I wish I still had hair to have color in and I'm only 63!
Dennis, Ya, me too & I've been that way since I was 20. Go figure.
Very cool, a hint for you, if you see a nice picture on e bay, right click on mouse and save image. now you can print it out for free, Bob
When I was a kid a did a book report on Henry Ford. I read that he kept his comb in some sort of salt water solution. Apparently this helped his hair retain a steely gray color. Now you know!
I should add that when I was a kid, every book report was either on Henry Ford or Model Ts, especially speedsters.
Great picture, thanks, Niels. Btw, not all my hair is turning gray. Most of it is turning loose.
GREAT PHOTO!!! Thanks for sharing here!!
If you're like me you have no gray hair whatsoever. I have black ones and I have white ones. The white ones are gaining while the black ones are loosing ground.
While employed by Henry Ford from 1911 to 1921, where he rose to the highest ranks, William Knudsen, according to sources, privately drove a white T Ford.
Does anyone have a photo of that car+owner?
Me too Keith! My dad had great hair and even looked a little like Henry. He always drove Ford products too.
I've seen that photo before on the internet.
As an optician, I love those Pince Nez.
