As the moving assembly line evolved, Ford Motor Company promoted its growing manufacturing prowess with clever promotional photographs. This image shows 1,000 Model T chassis lined up outside Ford's Highland Park Plant. The chassis represent a single nine-hour shift's production in August 1913 -- an impressive total reached even before the assembly line was fully implemented.
