Edison Lab. Oct 10, 1933 [drawing of Thomas Edison and Henry Ford in Edison's lab]

1933. 1 pen and ink drawing (21 x 26 cm.) by Francis Jehl, Edison's laboratory assistant. Signed and dated in pen in lower right-hand corner. Depicts Henry Ford speaking into Thomas Edison's right ear. Francis Jehl (1860-1941) began working for Edison in 1879 at Menlo Park. After working for Edison in Europe for many years, Jehl eventually assisted Henry Ford in recreating the Menlo Park laboratory in Ford's Greenfield Villege museum in Michigan, which opened in 1933. This drawing was probably made at that time as Edison and Ford commemorated Edison's groundbreaking work at the original Menlo Park laboratory. In Very Good Condition: small stain; browning along edges, particularly at upper corners; small chip out of upper right-hand corner; 2-cm. tear from upper edge, not touching image; one vertical crease along right-hand edge; lightly creased near edges. Very Good. Item #002584
