Lowell girls system and transportation system during the past

Transportation system


During the 1800's there were new methods in transportation because there were brand new factories with new machines and items that should be shipped out and be sold in other areas . Later , the two main transportation services were steamboats and railroad systems .

Lowell girls system


In Lowell Massachusettes showed a new slave labor system . They employed young unmarried girls . They also lived in small farms for their living . They worked 14 hours a day and only getting paid 2 dollars a week . So , it is more risky to work for the Lowell system because you never know when you can get hurt and you cant get help .
