March, 2014 - EDISON AND FORD SUMMER HOMES - FT. MYERS, FL

We drove to Ft. Myers, with our friend Brian, to pick up a car he was loaning us.  This was his home town and he recommended we stop in and see the Edison and Ford summer homes on our way back.  Edison and Ford were good friends and along with Firestone created a lab at their summer home to discover plants that would provide rubber for tires.  Very interesting place.
