The Model T Assembly Line

When looking up Google’s Driverless Car, , we ran into this Model T assembly line video on US History Educator Blog. The video not only shows the revolution of progressive assembly in Henry Ford’s factories (which changed how things are made around the globe), but some surprising 100 year old footage of how sturdy the Model T was on rough dirt roads, through snow, through rivers, down steep hills… down embankments more than a few feet high…
