Henry Ford
Henry Ford, Thomas Edison & Harvey Firestone

Henry Ford, Thomas Edison and Harvey Firestone have an amazing and rare filmed chat following the Lights Golden Jubilee–a campaign celebrating the 50th anniversary of Thomas Edison’ invention of the commercially available electric light bulb, which ended with an event held in Dearborn, Michigan on October 21, 1929.

Later that evening, after the formal ceremonies of Lights Golden Jubilee were complete, Henry Ford, tire magnate Harvey Firestone, and Thomas Edison chatted during a short radio broadcast about the exciting opportunities that new, modern inventions offered young men during the late 1920s. Modern subtitles have been added to compensate for the primitive late 1920s sound recording of the event.
