Industrialization and Urbanization
This storyboard does not have a description.
Let's learn about the Industrialization and Urbanization movement of the 19th century.
Industrialization was the growth of manufacturing in factories, and this began with Francis Lowell's construction of the first American textile company.
With the growth of manufacturing, we also saw improvements such as product assembly and the use of interchangeable parts.
The growth in machinery not only improved manufacturing in the factories, but it also helped the rate at which agriculture could be produced.
Industrialization also led to improvements in transportation. Now that product could be manufactured faster, factory owners now required faster and more affordable ways to deliver their products.
With the improvements brought upon with industrialization, there was also a spike in city population.
