Transcript of Industrial Revolution Prezi

Industrial Revolution Prezi By: Ali Qualls. P.3 Urbanization... Population... Why??? Transportation... Railways: Physical and Human Features of the United Kingdom. Urbanization is when people from rural
communities move to a lightly populated area and make it heavily populated, or urban. Latin America experienced a great
increase in population due to the
Industrial revolution, as did Africa.
These two countries went from
some of the lowest populated areas
to some of the largest. Urbanization occurred during the
Industrial Revolution because with the
increase in factories and business's.
People flocked around these to
try to improve their pay and lives. The new textile mill will be placed in the
tract of land halfway between Liverpool and Manchester. The textile mill will be built here because of its human and physical traits.
This tract of land is near an inlet where they will be able to export the textiles produced to other countries and have the materials we need imported with any trouble. During the Industrial Revolution
new ways of transportation were being created to help goods and other things be shipped around. A few new modes of transportation are railways and canals. The railways allowed trains to transport
materials and the finished goods around
the country. Railways reduced cost and created bigger markets, along with causing a rapid development in and of towns. To obtain our raw materials we will trade with East India, South America, Africa, and
the United States. We have to trade with these people
so we can get the material cotton. We need this because our competitors have been adding cotton fabrics to the usual wool that they have been spinning. If we can find this material we can be one of the first factories to offer cotton cloth the our consumers. This area is also primarily grassland, thus feeding and maintaining the sheep and other animals necessary to help produce the textiles we have created this industry for. The minimal amount of mountainous areas will ensure that no ship are killed or lost in the process therefor we wont loose any money, making our profit larger. Another feature of the area is the surrounding population. With a large population comes a large demand for essential objects, such as our textiles! Nearby are railroads and actual roads to help us transport our materials and textiles around to our mill and to the general population. Canals... Canals were man made waterways. Most barges were powered by horses on the banks with ropes tethering them to the barge as they pulled it forward. Image: ABD - J.J.Leeming - Accidental Expert." ABD - J.J.Leeming - Accidental Expert.

Canals made it possible for companies and business's to import and export goods and materials to wider ranges of places therefor increasing the productivity and amount of money made. Image: "7.2.

We will use the Liverpool cotton exchange to trade our materials for cotton. We will trade wool, braid, ribbons, lace, linen and possibly silk.
