What happened in london on September 7th 1859?


What happened in london on september 7th 1859?

You must be wondering why I am asking this question. Hehhehe.. Here's why, a friend was asking me about what happened in London on September 7th 1859. And I couldn't answer his question. I don't have good memory especially when it comes to history. Besides I wasn't even born at this date and year. I did search for the answers online but found nothing worthy of mention. So what really happened in London on September 7th 1859? Any ideas?

Update: Thanks to a reader of this blog who left a comment about what really happened in London on Sept. 17. 1859. It was on that date when Big Ben or the Clock Tower became operational. See below. However there is not much information on wikipedia about this.

Big Ben was the correct answer for the Marriott contest, right or wrong.

I'm not too sure if this is the correct answer. Although this is the closest I could find for my blog too... http://cafearjun.com/2008/11/07/big-ben-became-functional-in-london-on-7th-september-1857/
