One of the long-term effects of the industrial revolution was urbanization. People and farmers who lived in the countryside gradually moved to the urban towns and cities. After hearing about the new factories and machines that had been invented.
I've heard many people these days moving out to the town. I wonder what's so great about the city
Oh wow now I have realized why everyone wanted to move out the city
Many new factories were built during the industrial revolution and many people found it easier than farming but life in the factories wasn't going to be that easy.
During the industrial revolution, the environment and health of many people were affected. So much pollution was produced that many people couldn't even breathe and they would get many deathly lung diseases. Although this was a short-term impact this lead to a long-term impact, the study of medicine. As people were getting sick everyday people had to find a cure for the multiple diseases' and sickness' the pollution was causing. Without this we probably wouldn't be so advanced in terms of medicine today.
cough*cough* Life really isn't easy in these constricted factories. There is so much pollution and soot many people die because their lungs go bad. I think maybe staying back in my farms would've been better.
Transportation was also greatly impacted by the industrial revolution. Before it would probably take days to get to the place but the advancement in transportation made it so much faster.
Nowadays transportation is so easy now. Before it would take days but now I can just take a steamboat through the canals.
The industrial revolution also impacted modes of communication. The telephone was invented in 1876 by Alexander Graham Bell. Talking to people from other places was easier and there was no need to send any letters.
ahh it's time for bed. I will now call my friend. Before it used to be so hard to send messages through letter but no it has never been easier.
Child Labor was also implemented during the Industrial Revolution and the long-term impact of this was that later on laws were made against children working in very bad environments. This was implemented because children didn't need to be paid that much and could get things done easily.
