life before the industrial revolution
LIFE BEFORE THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION
  • Britain’s surplus of food and goods
  • demographic revolution
  • solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short
  • famine and death
  • wheat was a staple food
  • diseases were transported as exploration grew
  • infant mortality was high
why in britain first
WHY IN BRITAIN FIRST?
  • relative freedom from external threat
  • inquisitive minds, scientific revolution
  • freedom of speculation and the free flow of knowledge
  • removed serfdom, property rights, more advanced, much greater social mobility
why in britain first1
WHY IN BRITAIN FIRST?
  • no barriers against nobles engaging in trade and industry
  • internal customs barriers did not exist
  • better transport, navigable rivers, turnpike canals, railways
  • expanding export trade, mass market, raise standard of living
the first industrial revolution
THE FIRST INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION
  • textile industry (cotton)
  • iron industry
  • coal mining
  • transportation
cotton
Cotton
  • miracle fibre, durable, lighter than linen, insatiable demand
  • major innovations, John Kay’s flying shuttle, James Hargreaves’ “spinning jenny,” Richard Arkwright’s “water frame,” Samuel Crompton’s “mule”
  • inventions dramatically increased quantity, quality of cotton thread
  • “putting-out system”  “factory system”
coal and iron
Coal and Iron
  • water power becoming inadequate
  • coal new source of energy, steam engines
  • Thomas Newcomen steam engine, pump out & ventilate coal mines
  • James Watt steam engine, “age of steam”
coal and iron1
Coal and Iron
  • further expansion of coal production, increased demand for coal
  • steam power, coal, war, revolutionize iron industry
  • charcoal, smelting iron ore, pig iron, coal, charred form, coke, finished product unusable
coal and iron2
Coal and Iron
  • Abraham Darby, smelted iron ore with coke, steam-powered forced-blast furnace, pre-heated air, British pig-iron
  • Henry Cort’s “puddling,” steam-powered rolling process
  • iron cheaper, new sources of demand
transportation
Transportation
  • coal power to transport, railroad & steamship
  • steamships, Claude Jouffroy d’Abbans, steam-powered Atlantic crossing
  • railroad, steam engine, rail-borne wagons, iron rails replace wood
  • railroad & steamship, transport revolution, roads & canals, internal market & international
  • Britain had over 9000 miles of track, linking mines, factories, ports & cities
the second industrial revolution
THE SECOND INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION
  • steel
  • chemicals
  • electricity
  • internal combustion engine
the second industrial revolution1
THE SECOND INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION
  • science aided new technologies
  • First Industrial Revolution:
    • tinkerers
    • analytical
    • problem-solving
    • empirical
    • Scientific Revolution
the second industrial revolution2
THE SECOND INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION
  • contribution of scientific theory to practice
  • reforming bureaucrats of Germany (Prussian “Revolution from above”), science & teamwork, universal primary education, technical schools
  • Britain, primary education not compulsory until 1880
steel
Steel
  • strength, hardness, & elasticity
  • steel made in small melting pots or crucibles
  • Henry Bessemer, blowing air through crucible filled with molten pig iron
  • Siemens-Martin open-hearth furnace
  • Friedrich & Alfred Krupp, locomotives, machinery, engines of destruction
chemicals
Chemicals
  • organic chemicals derived from coal make synthetic dyes
electricity
Electricity
  • telegraph
  • Alexander Graham Bell’s telephone & Guglielmo Marconi’s radio
  • source of power, generators, alternators, & transformers
  • lighted new industrial cities, cheap, portable power in factories, electric motors
internal combustion engines
Internal Combustion Engines
  • steam engines heavy, lots of coal
  • Nicolaus Otto, internal combustion engine, 1st automobiles, powered flight
social effects of the industrial revolution
SOCIAL EFFECTS OF THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION
  • WORKING AND LIVING CONDITIONS
  • CHARTISM
  • URBANIZATION AND EMIGRATION
working and living conditions
WORKING AND LIVING CONDITIONS
  • women & children increasing portion of work force in factories & mines

  • movement faded away without success, eventually points of Charter became law
urbanization and emigration
URBANIZATION AND EMIGRATION
