Industrialization/Reilly Kent/Hr. 8
The Industrial Revolution was a time for great improvement, both in the way people lived and worked. Inventions like the electric lamp, motor, and other machines made everyday tasks easier. The motor was an especially significant invention, as it was a more efficient way to power many other important machines. The process by which fabric was made was also improved. Water-powered machines could make fabric in far less time than it would take a person before. In addition to new inventions that improved people’s lives, existing inventions were also improved upon. The telegraph was an improvement over other systems of communications and could send messages across longer distances more quickly. Today, communication continues to become faster and can spread across even greater distances. People are constantly working to make things better, and the foundation for much of what has been or is being improved began with the Industrial Revolution.
