Henry Ford's Neckerchief

One of the world's best known capitalists and anti-semitics is not the first person you'd picture when thinking of neckerchiefs, but yes, Henry Ford too was a believer, proudly wearing a necker on his holidays!

Henry Ford clowns while Thomas Edison beams during a rest stop on a camping trip. This picture is probably the only one ever taken of Ford with a cigarette. The auto king and Edison both abhorred the use of "little white slavers," as they called cigarettes.
