In Fort Myers, Florida, there’s a wonderful place that has preserved much of part of Thomas Edison’s life…….his experiments with all kinds of plants and trees that might produce rubber, his electric lamp labs, and even the entire home where he visited with his dear friend Henry Ford, who built his home next door. This peek into Edison’s kitchen gives us glimpse of a simpler time. The home was completed in 1887

Just a retired old guy who loves looking for an eclectic mix of subjects to photograph, from people, to places, to concepts, and enjoys all aspects of the hunt, the find, and the shot, plus dabbling in the post production.

    It definitely was a simpler time I didn’t realize Edison spent time in Florida, they have preserved his working labs in Edison NJ where he did most of his work on the electric light bulbs..

    you’d be surprised at the extent of this museum of his and henry ford’s summer homes. Evidently they were pals, and worked on joint projects, like rubber for tires, and traveled a lot together
