Concertina

Sir Charles Wheatstone, born in 1802 in England, was a scientist and inventor in the Victorian era.

Included in his inventions are the stereoscope, which displayed three-dimensional images, an encryption cipher, and the five-needle telegraph, among many others.  

One of his most famous inventions, however, was the English Concertina, a six-sided instrument similar to the accordion.
