The First Industrial Revolution began in England in the late 18th century, following in the wake of James Watt and his steam engine. (A Second Industrial Revolution would occur late in the 19th century and involve the development of the steel industry and giant corporations.)The initial focus of industrialization was on textiles; cloth was needed by almost everyone. Individual families, usually farm wives and daughters, would master one part of the process—spinning, dyeing, weaving and so forth.This decentralized means of production would become obsolete through the actions of such people as Samuel Slater and Francis Cabot Lowell.At the London Exhibition of 1851, although organized to showcase the advances of British science and technology, American industrial successes were for the first time placed on the international stage. A reaper produced by Cyrus McCormick was awarded the Grand Medal and the Council Medal after a demonstration. Charles Goodyear, discoverer of vulcanization, received a medal for some of his applications of rubber.

    I, as a person not young, very rarely used blogs, considering them useless, but now I completely changed my mind by visiting this wonderful blog. Firstly, I liked the accessible interface and convenient navigation, and secondly, a huge amount of useful information that will be useful to me in my profession for sure. Now I will visit blogs much more often, and I will add this one to bookmarks for convenience. There were also a sufficient number of reviews, which testifies to the excellent administration. Thank you very much for opening my eyes. I will be your regular satisfied visitor.
