Historic events for 1896
On June 4, 1896 in a tiny workshop behind his home on 58 Bagley Avenue, Henry Ford put the finishing
touches on his gasoline-powered motor car. After more than two years of experimentation, Henry Ford at
the age of thirty-two, had completed his first experimental automobile. He dubbed his creation the
 "Quadricycle," so named because it ran on four bicycle tires. The success of the little vehicle fueled
Ford's automobile ambitions, leading ultimately to the founding of Ford Motor Company in 1903.

Marconi transmitted radio signals for over a mile and applied for a patent in 1896.
