Today we bring a visit to the Henry Ford Museum in Detroit.
We visited the Greenfield Village with houses and buildings from the end of 1800 and the beginning of 1900.
You can see how people lived during that time and the technical development in that area.
Several Model T’s drove in the street in which you can make a drive as a passenger.
Trudy sends some postcards to Holland at a post office from the 20th

In the car museum there are of course a lot of old and newer Fords but also beautiful cars from other marks.
There is also a lot of attention to the technical development from the end of 1800 and the beginning of 1900.
Big steam locomotives for example.
We had a nice and very impressive day at the museum.
