In 1886, in the year that Nora Dunn was born, on February 14th, the first train left Los Angeles for the East -by the way of the transcontinental railroad - with a cargo of oranges. Due to irrigation and the import of water, Los Angeles was the ideal place to grow oranges - which became a popular addition to Christmas stockings.

In 1902, by the time she was 16 years old, the modern air conditioner was invented by Willis H. Carrier.

The Sun Belt thanks him!

In 1936, at the age of 50 years old, Nora was alive when on November 2nd, the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) debuted the world's first regular high-definition television service.

In 1943, by the time she was 57 years old, on September 3rd, the Armistice of Cassibile was signed in Sicily. Under the terms of the Armistice, Italy surrendered to the Allied Powers. After the Armistice was made public on September 8th, Germany attacked and occupied Italy. It took 20 months of fighting for the Allies to reach the northern borders of Italy.

In 1967, in the year of Nora Dunn's passing, between June 5th and 10th, Israeli and Egypt, Jordan, and Syria fought what came to be called the "Six-Day War".
