Industrial Revolution- Layke Graybill- Hour 7

The Industrial Revolution was one the most quickly advancing time periods, from 1760 to 1820. All the technology that we have today started during this time period. In 1876 the electric pen was created and later turned into ballpoint pens we use; just 3 years later the dynamo(generator) was invented and this would lead to us having electricity. These advancements were a big push in why cities and urban areas population began to grow. “In particular, average income and population began to exhibit unprecedented sustained growth.” This new technology didn’t reach all of society. The poor did not receive all this technology and the richer became richer. Without the industrial revolution we wouldn’t have both ups and down of of our society today.
