Plastic

Although plastic was brought into industrial use in 1909 by L.H. Baekland of Yonkers, it was not until the end of World War II that the modern miracle substance was used in a wide variety of consumer goods, among them speedboats, dentures and flamingos. Previously flamingos were made of cement. Before that they were made by other flamingos. - William E. Geist, The New York Times
