Travelling Tales and Treasures


Just back from our road trip in time for Tuesday's Treasures with Tom and where better to start reliving the memories than our visit to The Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield village in Dearborn, Detroit.  We were in Michigan to visit family and I'm so glad we stopped here as the museum is first class.

Here are just a few of the classic cars which I snapped.


and the shiniest old fuel truck...


An early tractor...




I found a reminder of home too as this is Harry Ferguson's Massey tractor



The kids loved the Wienermobil!





I was trying to imagine travelling for miles in a stage coach - what a sore backside was my first thought!


Hope you enjoyed these Tuesday treasures and be sure to see more HERE

Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Amazing shots Christine. I think those burgers tasted a lot better at 15 cents.Oscar Myer used to pass out wiener shaped bubble gum and Wienermoble whistles so it was an experience when they visited.That old Massey looks similar to my Ford tractor only it is painted.LOL
