Ford charcoal , never knew that, learn something everyday.
Yes Trent is still very much active ...
The history of Kingsford Charcoal is a classic American story. It all starts in 1919 when Edward G. Kingsford helped Henry Ford procure a stretch of timberland to supply wood for his auto plants.
Mr. Ford wondered if all the wood waste generated by his sawmill and plants could be put to better use, and found his answer in a new process for pressing blocks of reconstituted char. While the innovative charcoal briquet was initially marketed under Ford’s own brand, it was eventually renamed Kingsford® Charcoal in Edward’s honor. The rest, as they say, is history.
I really like that pic.
Thanks for the information, something else I learned today, so far a good day.
Is that the Beach Boys at Capital Records ?
