Henry Ford Museum trip 1

I traveled to the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn MI today, and found many interesting industrial era artifacts. 

A deconstructed Ford model T, showing how relatively simple it is compared with modern automobiles.


Celluloid collar and Libbey Company-manufactured glass fiber tie.


George Washington's camp bed. The iron bed frame and mattress folds into a small chest. Even though the invention is ingenius, I think G.W. preferred to make his quarters in local houses.


George Washington's traveling chest, with a simple mess kit, flasks etc.
