Posted by Rebecca

Here are a few things that were going on in 1927:

–          The Holland Tunnel under the Hudson River opens, connecting New York and New Jersey.

–          Charles Lindberg flies the first solo transatlantic flight.

–          Work begins on Mount Rushmore.

–          Josef Stalin takes power of the Communist Party in Russia.

–          Benito Mussolini is Prime Minister of Italy.

–          Roger Moore, Gina Lollobrigida, Sidney Poitier, Harry Belafonte, and Pope Benedict XVI were all born.

–          The Harlem Globetrotters play their first game.

–          Ford Motor Company begins production of the Model A.

–          The first telephone service between New York and London begins operation.

–          A record cost $0.39, chicken was $0.42/lb., eggs were $0.59/dozen, milk was $0.56/gallon, and a raccoon coat would set you back $39.50.

–          Oh, and this little trailer park was born, just steps from the Truckee River in Reno, Nevada.
