Economy in Victorian, London in 1837-1901

There were 1.9 million of a population in Victorian,  London during 1841. As the British empire expanded to the coves more than a quarter of the globe, it made Britain the most powerful nation in the world. During the Victorian era, law-makers and trade unions began to address and improve working conditions particularly for child labor.The availability of work in Britain's mills and factories, particularly after the introduction of  steam power, has the effect of drawing ever-increasing numbers of people from the countryside into rapidly expanding cities. Manchester and the closely related town of Salford have 25,000 inhabitants between them in 1772. In 1821 the joint population is 181,000. By 1851 this conurbation has grown to 455,000.
