253 THINGS THAT INTEREST FIRESTONE SHAREHOLDERS
1919 (FIRESTONE) THINGS THAT INTEREST FIRESTONE SHAREHOLDERS, The circle of Firestone stockholders has been so enlarged recently that it seems to your Directors to be an appropriate time for a review of the present proportions of the Rubber Industry and of the Firestone position in the industry. Akron, OH: The Firestone Tire & Rubber Co., (1919). 16p, 8 inserts in rear pocket, printed boards, 11 3/4"x 7 1/2", portrait, faint mark on front cover, o/w vg. A promotion published by Firestone at the height of the post WWI rubber industry boom. The inserts in the rear pocket are of great interest: 1. The Annual Statement of the Firestone Co. 2. An oblong double sheet (6 3/4"x 20") with 3 photos of Firestone Park homes and school. 3. A double folding photo of Firestone Plant No. 1. 4. A single sheet photo of Firestone Plant No. 2. 5. Single sheet photo of the Firestone Park & Trust Co. Bank. 6. A single sheet photo of the Firestone Steel Plant. 7. A Single sheet photo of the Shareholders Meeting in the Firestone Clubhouse in 1917. 8. A four sheet folded outline map of the world shows sources of crude rubber and cotton for tire fabric. These inserts illustrate various subjects of the text. The company was especially proud of its development of homes for its Akron employees now known as the Firestone Park section of Akron. It is interesting to note that before a year was out, Harvey Firestone, so expansive in this glowing estimate of the future, would be called back to Akron when the tire business collapsed. But that's another legend, told ably by Firestone in his book MEN AND RUBBER.
