In 1851 the Great Exhibition was held in the Crystal Palace: a building constructed specifically for the purpose of displaying Great Britain's manufacturing and commerce skills.

The Exhibition housed such wonders as rare diamonds, daguerrotypes, a single-cast iron frame piano, prototype revolvers made by Henry Colt, and a barometer made of leeches. It also housed a true innovation in the form of public flushing toilets.
