Storyboard Text

  • The Urban Living conditions were crowded and unsanitary...
  • This resulted in  many sicknesses and diseases being passed around from person to person.
  • Also, fires spread easily because the wooden structures were so close together and the fire leaped from building to building
  • This happened during the Chicago fire which destroyed over 18,000 buildings and killed 250 people.  (there was a similar fire in Boston as well)
  • Many scientists thought that the many diseases and sicknesses were caused by a lack of ventilation and airflow so they created a new building style called a dumbbell tenement .
  • YAY!
  • Scientists also improved the cities' water by adding new features like reservoirs and making the water cleaner and more sanitary. 
  • Clean Water Co.
