Inventions of the 1800's


Inventions of the 1800's

Ok, so you need to know that the 1800's have seen many many inventions. It is almost as if the light bulb in peoples mind was turned on when the year 1800 began. The world is a different place, both for the positive and the negative. We owe all the credit for that to the inventions of the 1800's.

So, be it Henry Bell, or Braille, Humphry Davy or Cyrus McCormick. They all got their minds and hands working on amazing inventions of the 1800's that have become a part of our day to day lives. Alright alright, I know you are probably skipping through my rants and introductions. So, let's just get to brass tacks, that is, the inventions of the 1800's.
