Abstract:

Although there is no documentation for when the scrapbook was created, it is presumed from the illustrations contained that it was between 1911 and 1925. The pages hold magazine and catalog clippings of fine cars (mostly European), illustrations and snapshots of English custom bodies on the Model T chassis, and pictures of early racing cars. Most of the first entries are from about 1913, when Edsel was age 19 or 20. In 1919, when he became president of Ford Motor Company, additions to the scrapbook taper off. Custom designed autombiles made for well-known people and celebrities are also represented, as well as racing automobiles and boats. There were also a number of loose articles, drawings, clippings, and photographs that were removed from the scrapbook and placed in acid free folders. Included are images of a custom automotive body designed for Edsel Ford; photographs of automobiles; photographs of Edsel's speedboats in the early 1920s; photographs of the interior of his home; articles about boating, aviation, and automobiles in the early 1920s; and a printed label: "Air Transportation Service of Ford Motor Co."
