"The Michelin Tire Company: The American Adventure"

Hello All,

I found a really cool pdf on keepmilltownhistoric.org . It goes super in depth into Michelin's stay in Milltown, as well as their other branches in America in the early 21st century If you dig, you can find some really cool information.

Pictures of a changing Ford Ave.

Readers, as you probably know, the Michelin plants on Ford Avenue in Milltown are being razed. Please share any pictures you have of the old or new Ford Ave here, so we can keep a record of the site.

Thanks!
