Henry Ford

Henry Ford's Italian Renaissance inspired house.

A tour of Detroit at the weekend brought me to Henry Ford's house.

Completed in 1908, this house was typical of the places built for high ranking auto industry executives at the time and he lived here when the Model T was hatched. While the car and its technology has come on a bit since those days, it's interesting to reflect on the fact that the basics of how cars are made - mass assembled on a line - hasn't changed over a century later.
