This is what things were like during the Industrial Revolution or 1800's...
2. This was a man that was working in the mines. Many people had to work in the mines to find coal. When the coal industry expanded they had to have a lot more people going to find coal.

1. In the beginning of the Industrial Revolution families went from farm areas to the newly Industrialized cities to find work. Mostly the women would work in factories and or they would stay at home and take care of the children and do the house work.

Picture and Information:
3. Children as young as six years old had to work long, hard hours for little or no pay. Children would work up to 19 hours a day, with only a one hour break. There was large and very heavy equipment that the kids had to use. There were a lot of accidents during this time. The children who worked in the factories got treated very cruel.

4. When you worked in the factories it was run for profit. Every machine costs money. When you were working in the factories there were no safety clothes. The workers would where there every day clothes to work.

Picture and Information:
5. The new towns and cities were developing during the Industrial Revolution so many people needed cheap housing, near some of the nearby factories. People were in a rush to build houses so they built them small and in rows. These houses had a small back yard and a toilet that was placed outside.

6. This was only one of the many factories during the Industrial Revolution. The factories are very big, but not very fun to work in. The reason the factories were important during the Industrial Revolution was because it helped produce a lot of goods.

Picture and information:
This is what the industry is like now!
7. While working in the factories a huge amount of people died from Cholera. Every year 3-5 million people were infected with Cholera. Cholera was caused by a bacteria called "vibrio Cholerae". You could get Cholera by drinking water or eating food with Vibrio Cholerae. The reason so many people got Cholera was because the living conditions were so unsanitary.

8. This is a picture of a cotton gin. The cotton gin was invented in 1742, by Eli Whitney. This was only one of the machines they used during the Industrial Revolution. The cotton gin separated the fiber from the seeds a whole lot quicker. The cotton gin could clean up to 50 pounds of cotton each day, so it was very important during the Industrial Revolution.

9. Another great invention during the Industrial Revolution was the steam engine. In the 1760's James Watt made the steam engine which used heat very efficiently and didn't use a lot of fuel. To power the engine you had to use coal. So the steam engine was important during the Industrial Revolution.

Picture and Information:
10. This is a picture of a women that is doing a lot of the work around the house. In the picture the women is cooking. Most of the time the women were the cookers around the house. The women would ware very ragged clothing while working and that was there every day clothes.

Picture and Information:
12. This is what cars are like now. This is a picture of a new Audi. This car is a German car and they have increased in popularity over the last five years.
