Henry Ford & Harvey Firestone

Photo Details

Henry Ford (left, cutting a piece of fruit) with Harvey Firestone (of Firestone Tire and Rubber Company) on the Ford - Edison camping trip. It looks like this "camping trip" was the precursor of corporate retreats since the "Edison" refers to Thomas Edison. I think that they were brainstorming ideas and cementing relationships. A camping trip rather than a golf game.
