The beauty of Linoleum

Linoleum, made from linseed oil and various additives, dates back to 1855, although the name (derived from the Latin words for flax and oil) didn't appear until later.  The inventor was an Englishman named Frederick Walton, who established the Linoleum Manufacturing Company in 1864, and a U.S. establishment in 1872.
