I'm trying to identify countries that Model K may have been shipped to. The Ford Walkerville (Canada) ledger pages help answer some questions, however sometimes create more questions. John Stokes, our Aussie friends, Hap, Trent or any number of forum readers may be able to help with their knowledge of Ford Motor Company export practices, so please throw your theories or info out there.
This portion of a 1907/08 Ford Canada ledger has piqued my interest:
A closeup of the entry in question:
It looks as if on June 14, 1907, the Ford Canada ledger indicates K #295 is shipped to "Arkell & Douglas, M(?) Eliz (maybe Elizabeth?). Could this be "Port Elizabeth, South Africa?"
I am only able to view this snippet, however it appears Arkell and Douglas of Port Elizabeth SA became Ford representatives in 1905.
John Stokes wrote about Arkell and Douglas in this excerpt of a 2008 forum thread:
Is it possible we've found another country the K was exported to?
