Early scientists had a harder time figuring out what cells were made of and what created each atom, electron, neutron, etc., given that they didn’t have as accessible of an idea to base these models off of. We had the basic building blocks of what was in the bag in front of us. Even though that makes identifying things more difficult for the scientists, they do have the option of (in some cases) seeing the unidentifiable object in action. Our objects were completely inert, giving us no way of identifying the functionality of all the pieces we were dealing with.
