Those were the days

Grace Andreen sits in a Flanders motorcar in front of the Andreen Blacksmith Shop in Woodside during the early 1900s.

The Flanders company operated in Detroit from 1910 to 1913 after Flanders left the Ford Motor Co., which used some of the techniques he developed to build the popular Model T automobile.
