Interior (Back Floor) of Henry Ford Museum, 1928

Summary

One of a series of views of the Museum as built, this black and white drawing shows the exhibit gallery, or Machine Hall, as architect Robert O. Derrick described it. The unique shed-like ceiling with skylights, echoes Albert Kahn's Ford Engineering Laboratory, completed in 1923. Unlike today, artifacts were arranged in lines by type; shown here, wagons and steam engines.
