1847

I've found out that:
The first solide and edible piece of chocolate was made by J S Fry in 1847
The seventh asteroid discovered was 7 Iris, discovered in 1847
Thomas Alva Edison(the inventor of the lightbulb amongst other splendid devices) was born in 1847
The first postal stamp was issued in the United Stated in 1847
The Vegetarian Society was formed in The UK in 1847

And last but not least

Our house was built in 1847
It's not a posh house but
What an old distinguished home we have!

Oh, I love the woodwork on your house! Mine is a very new house by comparison, having been built in 1923 and revised in 1928, although right smack in the middle is the foundation from the original house, which was built at the same time as yours. Funniest of all is that at one side of our basement is the well from that original little house. I always have a pit of water in my basement. 1847 was a good year indeed, if for nothing other than the chocolate!
