Transcript of France Industrial Revolution

France Industrial Revolution By: Yannah Ziegler, Sophie Clymer and MacKenzie Wardell The French Industrial Revolution didn't follow the normal path of industrialization. The French Revolution was a much shorter and more gradual process than other countries. It took a more steady route through the 1800's to the 1900's. People didn't realize they had industrialized until after the fact. History France didn't have an abundance of natural resources that fueled the other nations such as Great Britain. Coal and iron ore were not easily accessible to the French.

The French did have other resources that help them industrialize. They relied on their water sources for power and timber for fuel. Natural Resources The French were a thriving agricultural nation well into the twentieth century. They used this for their benefit. In 1830 they had three big establishments of cotton mills. The first was in Rouen in Normandy, between Lille and Roubaix in the North and Alsace. These establishments and the invention of the sewing machine boosted Frances textile industry. Innovations The waterways were the main form of transportation in France. There were many natural rivers and streams that were used to create canals for more routes.
The French railroads took more time to develop because of the lack of iron in the region. The french rail roads also fell behind because of the wars. It took help from the French government for the railroads to be created. By 1914 France had the most densely populated railroad system.
