Henry Ford with 400 baby chicks

Size: 768×559

Henry Ford, a member of the Four Oaks 4-H Club, Four Oaks, Johnston County, North Carolina, Rt. 1, is shown doing his part to speed up the production of poultry. This black and white image shows him crouching down with his elbows on his knees in his tobacco curing barn which has been converted into a brooder house. Henry is wearing dark pants, a white shirt and dark tie, and a plaid jacket with a round pin on the breast pocket. He wears wire-rimmed glasses and has a fedora on his head. Surrounding him are 400 New Hampshire Red baby chicks that will be ready for market that winter.
