Rubber Band Invented?

Answer

The rubber band was invented by Stephen Perry of London. He patented it 1845.

Londoner Thomas Hancock sliced up one of the bottles to create garters and waistbands in the 1920s. Few years later, Englishman Stephen Perry, owner of the rubber manufacturing company Messer?s Perry and Co took out a patent on the rubber band. The first rubber bands were made from vulcanized rubber.
