OTD in 1810 – Tin Can Day

~~ Today (January 19) is Tin Can Day ~~
The tin can was patented in 1810 by the English inventor Peter Durand.
He did not produce any food cans himself, but sold his patent to two other Englishmen, Bryan Donkin and John Hall, who set up a commercial canning factory, and by 1813 were producing their first canned goods for the British Army.

Where would we be without the Tin Can!?
