Corrugated iron was invented in London in 1828 by a Henry Robinson Palmer. It involves a rolling
mill process, if it is stamped, it will have weak spots. It quickly became popular particularly for
roofing and farm buildings, but was also used in more elaborate structures. There is a corrugated
iron ballroom at Balmoral.
