Tower Subway, the world’s first underground tube railway, opened in London on this day in 1870.

Did you know that:

• English explorer Henry Hudson entered the bay later named after him, the Hudson Bay, on this day in 1610
• Samuel Briggs and his son were granted a patent for a nail-making machine on this day in 1791
• A patent for a “glass-shaping machine” was granted to Michael Owen on this day in 1904. The immense production of glass bottles and jars today owes its inception to this invention
