The Great Exhibition Of 1851
Jake Middleton-Metcalfe posted a topic in Concertina HistoryI have been looking into the history of the Great Exhibition of 1851, the crystal palace and the exhibits there. I had a look through the list of exhibitors and found William Wheatstone (Charles brother?) exhibiting concertinas at the exhibition, which would make sense as much of the worlds latest tech was on display there, Especially as the concertina was relatively new at the time.

Daguerreotypes? If anyone knows I would love to see Jake
