U.S. Steel was the first billion dollar company in the world, worth $1.4 billion in 1901.

1927 - When this person was 26 years old, the first "talkie" (a movie with music, songs, and talking), The Jazz Singer, was released. Al Jolson starred as a cantor's son who instead of following in his father's footsteps as expected, becomes a singer of popular songs. Banished by his father, they reconcile on his father's deathbed. It was a tear-jerker and audiences went wild - especially when they heard the songs. Thus begun the demise of silent films and the rise of "talkies".

1943 - At the age of 42 years old, Senja was alive when on June 20th through June 22nd, the Detroit Race Riot erupted at Belle Isle Park.

The same summer, there were riots in Beaumont, Texas and Harlem, New York.

1956 - Senja was 55 years old when this was the year that the King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley, became an international sensation. He began the year as a regional favorite and ended the year with 17 recordings having been on the Billboard’s Top 100 singles chart, 11 TV appearances, and a movie. Elvis scandalized adults and thrilled teens.

1992 - In the year of Senja Antilla's passing, in April, Bosnia-Herzegovina declared independence from Yugoslavia.
