Dining tent at Camp Harding
Description: Close up view of President Warren G. Harding and other diners in the dining tent that was set up during a camping trip taken by rubber manufacturer Harvey Firestone, inventor Thomas Edison and automobile manufacturer Henry Ford in 1921. This trip was one of many that Ford, Firestone, and Edison took together between 1916 and 1924. Harding was invited to their camping trip in Maryland in July of 1921, which became known as "Camp Harding." The circular dining table was nine feet in diameter and had a Lazy Susan on the top so that diners could reach any of the dishes they wanted. It also folded so that it could be transported easily.
