Paul Miller who said he was a pilot during the VietNam era hated long haired workers. He would stand behind me at my desk and make derogatory statements about hippies. I’m sure he advanced fast, because he loved writing paper on employees.

The Trip I Made

Here is a tour book from March 10, 1928 showing a Henry Jacobs that toured the Buick factories. The link for viewing this book is at 1929 Buick
This picture, and the one shown below, (from another later edition) is done a little different than my copy. This particular copy sold on E-Bay for $217.20. But I have seen them go for between $50.00 to $250.00. The name engraved on the cover of this one is Robert Leonard. See the centerfold in my edition farther below.
This is a copy from February 24, 1930. They added another picture or two. Some of the wording has been changed in this later edition.

This was a keepsake given to visitor’s that toured the Buick factory in the 20’s & 30’s. This is an early edition. I have seen some later editions (shown above) with different drawings inside. This particular one “that I own” has the name K.E. Burgan embossed on the cover. You can super enlarge just about any photo on this blog for viewing small details.
