Michelin Travel Guides
Michelin has done much to enhance mobility. The company patented the pneumatic, or air-filled, tire in the late 1800s. This milestone in mobility permitted automobile owners to travel at great lengths in a single journey. Then, in an effort to prompt travelers to enjoy their newfound mobility, the company created guides and detailed maps to steer motorists on their way.
