Tech of the past: Stagecoach Travel Trailer

This 1935 Stagecoach travel trailer was first owned by Henry and Clara Ford before being given to Charles Lindbergh in 1942. In this trailer, Lindbergh wrote part of his book, The Spirit of St. Louis while his wife Anne wrote The Steep Ascent. The Lindberghs used this trailer for 15 years, travelling to 37 states and Ontario, Canada.
