    Between 1916 and 1924, Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Harvey Firestone, and John Burroughs, embarked on a series of camping trips. They called themselves the Vagabonds and camped in style. Numerous support staff set up and took down camp, cooked, took photographs, and maintained the cars and equipment trucks. This photograph shows chefs Fisher and Herman cooking for the group in 1921.

    Believe it or not Ford had an option for an exhaust manifold oven so you drive and cook at the same time!

    At its peak, Ford Motor Company's Willow Run Plant employed more than 42,000 people who produced one bomber every 63 minutes. The plant's five million square feet of roofed workspace incorporated everything needed to train and care for its workforce, including classrooms, a hospital, a commercial kitchen and a cafeteria.

    A special thanks for Duckfat, Dave for pointing me toward the Ford museum.

    IIR Willow run is where they made the B-24. We went to an air show there last summer. Got some great P-51 Mustang shots and a few bombers as well. That is a serious Bain Marie. Those pots look to be 20-40 quarts each. BTW if any one does come to Detroit to vist The Henry Ford drop me a PM. I often have extra passes. The old car festival in September is a lot of fun.

    The big news in the kitchen during the 1920s? Reliable, affordable electric refrigeration. As more homes had access to electric power, people replaced their messy wooden ice boxes with stylish, low maintenance, enameled porcelain electric refrigerators. In 1930, 10% of households had them -- by 1940, 56% did. General Electric's distinctive "Monitor Top" refrigerator was a big seller in the late 1920s and early 1930s.

    Thanks steeley, that's the most action I've seen in a long time.
    I might just have to install a "Monitor Top" on myself to cool down after that one!
