Corrugated Iron

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.
