Wonder if Kingsford also sold farm equipment ? This picture seems to be about that spiffy new manure spreader. When did Kingsford get into making charcoal briquets ?

That is one long flight of stairs with no support!!Also for the time that is a very long turd hearse,and i think it's the largest horse drawn i have ever seen! I used to work with a old man who's dad's team ran away and he fell backwards in one and it killed him! I must be old.

Kingsford owned the property in U.P. Michigan that supplied the beautiful oak for Henry's automobiles,
town of kingsford is still there, also great history of charcoal briquettes , Henry utilized scrap wood from car production to make charcoal which was sold at his dealerships along with a small grill, Smart Man!!

Clevis on the draw bar and position of the actuating levers, Bud, I think this "honey wagon" was meant to be pulled by a tractor. I can't see for sure whether there's a seat on it, but I sure don't see one.

Wow. Runaway. What a way to go - run through the thresher. Must have been near empty when the horses broke ?? R.I.P.
