Inventions Timeline By: Emma Boehme
and Austin Zhang From the late 1800's to the1950's, There were many revolutionary inventions. Many of the of the items that we use today are based on the inventions of the brilliant people. Let's go in order, from the first crucial invention in this time period, to the last. This was when in 1866, Cyrus Field managed to lay a telagraph caple across the bottom of the Atlantic ocean. This revolutionized communication. now you could communicate with your family across the pond. The next major invention was the typwriter, invented in 1868, by William Sholes. This made it so it so that people did not have to handwrite everything, like they had before. by: Emma & Austin Boehme Zhang I n v e n t i o n s Cyrus Feild invented the transcontinental telegraph line in 1866, which went from the U.S., under the Atlantic Ocean, and to Europe. This was a very revolutionary invention at the time, because now, people could talk to all their relatives across the pond. The next amazing invention was the telephone, invented by Alexander Graham Bell in 1876. This awesome device allowed people to not only communicate, but able to hear the voices of their family members and friends. Samuel Morse in 1844 introduced the telegraph to the American Community. The telegraphs sent messages using morse code. In 1879, Edison Invented the first working lightbulb, then designed power plants, to distribute power to them. By 1880, the lighbulb was a sucess, and to celebrate, that Christmas he used 40 bulbs to light up Menlo Park, the place he invented them. In 1888, George Eastman invented the Kodak camera- a small box that made it easier and cheaper to take photos. In 1899, John Thurman invented the vaccuum cleaner. This device simplified housework for women nationwide. Henry Ford invented two of the most important inventions; cars, namely Model Ts, and assembly lines. After years of work experimenting on building a gasoline- run automobile, in 1908, his project suceeded. He had created a new way of transportation. Charles Sorenson decribed this automobile as, "a car which anyone could afford to buy, which anyone could drive anywhere, and which almost anyone cuold keep in repair." For these reasons, the Model T became extremely popular. by 1926, his company had sold 15 million of these amazing items. He also invented a new, less expensive way to produce things (in his case, cars) called an assembly line. this is where each worker performed an assigned task again and again at a certain stage in the production. this made it faster, easier and less expensive for Ford to manufacture automobiles This is an example of an assembly line. All and all, these inventions were the building block for the items that are around today, like cell phones and racecars.
