Electricity makes life brighter and gives us diverse goods!

Electricity replaced steam power making it the main source of industrial power. The dynamo was and is the main source that helps electrical generators and transformers. In 1870 the first electric light bulb was invented, it made cities brighter and made it so then factories could stay open after dark, making city life more alive. Before factories used large amounts of workers and power-driven machines. Then in the 1800's manufactures started making interchangeable parts. Next came the assembly line in the 1900's.
