The Effects of Industrialization

The industrial Revolution was a time where many great things were invented. The effects of

industrialization helped defined the Victorian Period as a time of great change, by improving the

economy and transportation through the addition of new jobs, inventions, and advancement of

transportation.


The industrial revolution helped defined the Victorian Period, by changing a farming

lifestyle to a factory lifestyle. “By 1870, there were over 100,000 steam engines at work

throughout Britain.” (Industrial 3) Because of the invention of the steam engine there were many

new ideas to improve daily life of the people. These steam engines were huge and were huge

enough to run whole factories. (Industrial 3) Steam engines caused the rise of factories, which

led to the necessities of workers, causing people to move from a farming lifestyle to an urban

lifestyle. “In 1837, 80% of Britain’s population lived in the countryside, but in a matter of years,

machines were invented that could do jobs way faster than a human, thus causing the rise of new

factories. Because of this people were left jobless, therefore they flocked to the cities to find

jobs in factories.” (Industrial 2) This, although left people jobless, it provided jobs for more

people because more factories were built, increasing the production of goods. “Children and

young women were employed in terrible conditions in factories and dangerous places, such as

textile mills and mines.” (Industrial 17) Women and children weren’t physically capable to do

such work, they had to do it to support their families. Although the factories provided jobs for

people, it had also killed off many children and women who worked in unsafe or unsanitary

environments


New inventions improved the economy by increasing the productions of goods, which

means the increase of industrialization, causing the economy to grow, prospering the Victorian

Period. With the invention of the cotton gin, cotton production accelerated. Cotton production

was now fast and highly profitable. (Industrial Revolution 4) With the production of cotton, the

need for more factories was mandatory, affecting the economy with its large productions. The

Spinning Jenny could spin up to 8 threads at once, soon improved up to 120. (Inventions 2)

This invention helped the economy by lowering the prices of clothing made from wool, since it

could now be made much faster, and more efficiently. “The Water frame was a large wheel that

was turned using running water.” This wheel was then used to turn the cogs inside a factory to

operate the machinery. (Inventions 3) The Water Frame was able to work faster than people,

therefore more work was being done. The inventions of the Industrial Revolution were crucial

to the economy because if there were no inventions, factories wouldn't have been popular, and if

they weren't popular the economy wouldn't have improved.


With the inventions of the steam engine, many more machinery could be made, and

powered by a steam-engine. The steamboat, was a great new way to

which also led to the romanticism period when people were like o shit the industrial revolution just fucked up our human mind. Maybe science isn't everything. And so great writers and painters were born such as edgar allen poe
