Did you know.....

Did you know that windshield wipers were invented by a woman? 

Mary Anderson received a patent for her car-window cleaning device in 1903. 

While on a trip to New York City, Anderson noticed that drivers had to open their car windows when it rained in order to see.  That's when the idea of a swinging arm device with a rubber blade that would be controlled by the driver to clean the window came to her.
