On this day in 1927, Ford Motor Company ended production of the Model T.  Considered to be the first affordable automobile, the Model T made travel by car affordable to middle-class Americans.  On this same day, in Alton, Illinois, Cleota Mae Henry celebrated the 1st birthday of her son, Miles Davis.
