Industrial Production

Industrial production made Britan's economy rich

Textile Industry advances greatly

Inventions like John Kay's flying Shuttle, which enabled weavers to work 10 times faster, or James Hargreaves's invention Spinning jenny allowing spinners to catch up to weavers. But above all of this is Eli Whitney's cotton gin which supply the cotton to spinners and weavers. All of these amazing inventions increased cloth production to the point of madness, making if faster, cheaper, and but more dangerous.

Production brings trouble but also prosperity

the early industrial age brought terrible hardships such as low pay, bad living conditions, and dangerous work. Although all of these were fought by reformers working for better labor laws. Most of the time they would start unions who in turn started strikes demanding better pay and working conditions. Eventually things improved, after all factories did make more jobs with better wages

The Introduction of Steel

When steel came around production rose through the roof. Steel made better tools, stronger bridges, and railroads making it easier to transport goods which increased sales and mass production. But to be able to make all the this to be mass produced new things like interchangeable parts and assembly lines.


Industrial production caused both good and bad things but after awhile people worked to resolve the problems and make things better. Wages increased, working conditions got better, and cities were rebuilt to increase health and get ride of the slums.
