Henry Ford

Henry Ford was responsible for the world's first mass produced car - the Model T. Between 1908 and 1927, his company built 15 million examples of the car which was to play such a key role in transforming the world's transportation. The explosion in the amount of traffic inevitably led to the demand for more and better roads which has challenged civil engineers throughout the century.
