Later, when the railways were built, many new and fresh foods to the towns and cities. The invention of the steam ship, and of transport refrigeration, meant that also meat, fish and fruit could be imported from overseas quite cheaply. Industrial expanded, new machinery, new work methods, new technology(water, gas, electricity, power distribution networks), communications (the telegraph, popular press), science (Darwin's theory of evolution), the building of the railways and the London Underground, and , bridges, new inventions(the typewriter, telephones, the post, the camera, the sewing machine, motor cars, etc.); a greatly expanded empire; unequal growth of wealth, with class differences to the fore; tremendous poverty; urban populace increased, great cities grew; literacy increased ; and great civic works, often funded by industrial philanthropists.
