Interest in tiny houses has exploded in recent years, but the idea isn't new as this tiny home from the 1960s shows.

In 1906, the battleship HMS Dreadnought entered into service with the Royal Navy. With her 12-in (305 mm) guns, high speed capabilities and other innovations, she rendered all other major warships obsolete.
