Henry Ford's trade school for boys

A young trainee at the Henry Ford Trade School in Dearborn operates a machine in 1941. The school, opened in 1916 with six boys and one instructor, was based on Henry Ford's belief that the American worker had lost the use of his hands, and his trade school would teach the boys to use their hands as well as their heads, just as he had taught himself to do.
