Default 1917 Post Cards

Received this collection of post card pictures in an email with the following description.

When The Company was The Company........


Henry Ist had on-site schools, teaching the workers to speak English; as well as hospitals, etc.

This pdf is of an accordion style format postcard with 22 photos depicting factory scenes at Ford
Motor Company from 1917.

Great rare photo images of the historic Ford Highland Park Plant.

At this plant Henry Ford introduced industrial innovations such as a crane lifting materials in the
central atrium to the upper floors, from where parts would slide or be
crane dropped to lower floors for progressive operations... and where Ford and his team introduced
the auto assembly line.

Of the seven huge electrical generators Ford had constructed there, one was eventually moved by rail
and installed at the Henry Ford Museum for all to see evermore.

I searched these forums and only found a few of the pictures, but not the whole collection. Here are more of the post cards.

Limited to the number of attachments. Combined the rest of them into one file. Hope that works. Maybe I'll get this figured out...
