Harley-Davidson 100 Years of History
There is over 100 years of history of Harley-Davidson. In the beginning of the 1900’s William S. Harley and Arthur Davidson produce the first Harley Davidson which expand to their many models today. By 1914 the United States Postal Service was using instead of the bicycle. Eventually, the Unite States Army saw good use for Harley-Davidson. Check out their History right here from their site www.harley-davidson.com
Two boyhood friends named William S. Harley and Arthur Davidson started their business from a 10 by 15 shed. Two friends who had an vision to put a motor on a bicycle to make travel easier and quicker. See more from an article from entrepreneur.com
What sticks out for me is how many American businesses start out. Like the story about Harley-Davidson, it started in a 10 by 15 shed. Just think how many companies start out in garages, basements, sheds and even the kitchen table. I knew a business who drew an idea on a napkin at a bar. Americans just do it. We do what have to no matter where it is. We work with what we have. We start with an idea and build from there.
To me when a company fly’s that american flag they don’t forget of the men and women who gave their life to have that freedom to start an idea and build it. So we can start our own idea in a garage, basement and a shed.

Pool Store Flying American Flag. I rode by another American Flag Sighting at The pool Store. I never knew it was there. Look at these nice Colors. The American flag in front of The Pool Store building in red and white with the blue sky in back ground.
The Pool Store has three locations West Berlin and two stores in Sewell, New Jersey. Their web sites mention that they have a complete line of swimming pools which it includes pool chemicals, supplies and equipment. The Store specializes in the installation of in-ground vinyl pools, in-ground liners, safety covers, salt systems and pool equipment.
What I like is the Pool Store mentions that they have years of experience. I know this myself that it is important to get the correct answer to your swimming pool questions. There is nothing more frustrating when you are having pool problems either chemical or mechanical. You what the right answers from a professional.
American businesses come in all sizes, as Americans it seams that most of us are born as natural entrepreneurs. We are always thinking out of the box. We are survivalist, always looking for a ways to survive financial or just make things better. I know I take pictures of American companies big or small but I just had to take a picture of this American Flag Flying on an antique farm tractor. Maybe this is not a business (although they do sell fire wood) but I just had to take this picture. I love the idea of hanging an American Flag on an antique tractor. John Deere made things better for American farmers. At the age of 17 john Deere was a black smith in Vermont. he latter move to Illinois to look for work. John Deere heard from farmers complaining that their plows were breaking in the hard soil in Illinois. john know he could make it better. He redesigned and made the plow out of steel not the cast iron plows the farmers where using. Check out this link, nicks history of antique tractors.
