Lot 282: Uncommon matte-finish 5.5 x 3.5 postcard photo of Henry Ford whispering in Thomas Edison's ear, signed in fountain pen by Ford. In fine condition. Ford and Edison were close friends and exchanged ideas, frequently traveled together, and eventually lived in the same neighborhood. As a tribute to his friend's genius, Ford founded the Edison Institute in Detroit in 1929, where he collected and displayed American history 'as written into things their hands made and used,' with Edison's Menlo Park laboratory transported and rebuilt as its centerpiece. A warm and friendly image of these titans of American innovation, neatly signed by the automotive pioneer. RR Auction's Fine Autographs and Artifacts Auction 458 Wednesday, 12th August 2015 Estimate: $1500-2000
