Pickin’ a Blog!
Do you watch the History Channel TV show “American Pickers”? Don’t know what a picker is? Not familiar with the show? Well, the show follows Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz as they travel across the country looking for rare artifacts and national treasures. Hitting back roads from coast to coast, the two men earn a living by restoring forgotten relics to their former glory, transforming one person’s trash into another’s treasure.
And, the television show that’s watched by about 2.7 million people on the History Channel each week picked Reed Brothers Dodge History blog!
The archivist for “American Pickers” found a 1923 photo of Reed Brothers Dodge on our blog and asked permission to use it in one of their upcoming episodes. The image was used in Season 7, Episode 34: “Can’t Catch a Break” when Mike and Frank find an old Dodge Brothers sign. Mike explains a bit of the history of the company and he used the photograph during his explanation.
Below are images extracted from the American Pickers “Can’t Catch A Break” video.
