Gearhead History Americana: More Photos Of Machines, Factories, Cars, Trucks, and More From The Past


Gearhead History Americana: More Photos Of Machines, Factories, Cars, Trucks, and More From The Past

(Photos from the Detroit Library Digital Collection) – I love this stuff. So my addiction to crawling the digital stacks of the Detroit Public Library has hit a fever pitch and today I found some neat and varied stuff for you to gawk at and admire. From a milling machine at the Willys factory to fire trucks, P-38s, and freighters we have a little something for everyone.

It is kind of funny that these images which really depict some pretty mundane stuff are so interesting to look at now. We’re wondering if people will be doing the same stuff with photos taken today 100 years from now. The shots of manufacturing plants and people at work are perhaps the most fascinating because it really shows just how much the world has changed and how technology and standards have evolved over the years. As cool as the photos are, we’re not sure we’d want to change places with any of the workers in the images. Would you?

We would like to own some of the cars and trucks and a ride in a P-38 would be something else as soon as we get our time machine fixed up!

    Thank you for sharing, it is very interesting to watch such photos after so many years. These photographs show how much our world has changed over the past decades. I recently wrote a research paper on this topic using a service I found on this resource https://pickthewriter.com/ I certainly would not have coped with such a volume of knowledge on my own, although I know history well enough, over the past hundred years there have been colossal changes in the world of technology. If I could attach these photos to my work, it would be great!

    Very interesting, thank you for sharing! History has always attracted me and therefore I chose this direction for myself. I recently prepared a term paper on this subject, using this service https://www.professionalessaywriters.com/ And I learned new interesting facts. I\’m glad that can find a lot of such information in the public domain, on different source including this blog.
