Becoming the Motor City: A Timeline of Detroit’s Auto Industry with Author Paul Vachon
Monday, September 27 at 7 pm (In person in the Carlo Meeting Room at the Library)
Detroit author and historian Paul Vachon will be sharing the highlights of his newest book that traces the evolution of the auto industry in Detroit. Beginning with the early tinkerings of Ransom Olds, Henry Ford, Charles King, and others, these pioneers both refined the mechanics of this radical new invention, but also developed the methods to mass-produce and sell cars as a profitable business venture. Over the course of the twentieth century, the industry showered economic prosperity on its home city, but when times changed, both Detroit and the automakers suffered.
Paul will use slides and commentary to explain this unique story. Registration Required.
