Industrialization in England
The Industrial Revolution came about in the 1750’s all the way through the 1900’s. With the motivation and help from the factors like natural resource, and population size England became the first to industrialize. Industrialization became a big part of everything during that time period to now.
The various reasons for this craze can be first explained by England’s geography. All of England’s natural resources were close together. This made it easier for them to be connected using transportation systems. “She has coal and iron lying close together…” – (Document 4). A little later on in industrialization England used trains to move their coal from place to place. To add to their hair lead England was about 99% an island. England was easily accessible for the exportation of their goods by means of ships. This leg up on trade made it effortless for them to export all the goods that were being made in the factories.
Before the industrial revolution there was a clear lack of technology. It was just the simple ideals for them. But, during as well as after everything was (as they saw it) inadequate. George Stevenson invented the first commercially successful steam locomotive in 1825. It was called the Rocket. The steam engine was being used to transport coal and iron from place to place. The fastest way to transport goods was by ocean travel. “Discoveries in different fields of activity were linked together…” – (Document 5). So canals were built in 1776. Canals made it so ships can be loaded with goods and be exported and run a sort of carrier pigeon scheme.
England’s population was massive. But not massive enough to ignore using slave labor. Without slave labor many factory workers would get paid less because of supply and demand. It can be said that Child labor in most cases was considered to be slave labor. This since the children where working in the factories without and of the standard luxuries that we have today.
