ok, this is epic
The Industrial Revolution, led by Great Britain, completely transformed how work was done. By the mid-1800s, British manufactures far exceeded those of any other country. Industrialization happened so quickly in Great Britain that it earned the nickname “workshop of the world.” Why did the revolution start in this small, European island nation?
Factors of Industrialization Great Britain became the first nation to industrialize because it had all of the necessary factors:
1. Political Stability Britain had a stable government that supported individual political freedom, property rights, and equality of opportunity. These traits encouraged entrepreneurs to take risks in pursuit of profit.
2. Labor Britain had plenty of people available for work. British farmers produced so much food that many of its people were freed to do different kinds of work. Many of those people went to work in industry.
3. Raw Materials Britain had plentiful supplies of the raw materials needed in industry, such as coal for fuel or wool for textiles.
4. Banking System Britain's banks provided loans to entrepreneurs to finance large projects, such as factories, railroads, and coal mines.
5. Transportation System Britain had a network of navigable rivers and seaside ports. It built a nationwide system of canals. Later, it developed a railroad network, making the transportation of goods and raw materials cheaper and faster than ever before.
As textile making became mechanized, it required larger and more expensive equipment. This eventually shifted the site of fabric production from individual homes to factories.
Innovation in Textiles The first industry to be transformed in Great Britain was textile production Before industrialization, every step of cloth making had to be done by hand. The raw fiber, like wool and cotton, had to be cleaned and untangled. The fibers had to be twisted into thread. Then the threads had to be woven into cloth. Each step was laborious and time-consuming. Skilled artisans used simple tools and equipment to make cloth in their own homes.
In the mid-1700s, English inventors created machines to speed up the cloth-making process. In 1733, John Kay invented the flying shuttle to automate the weaving process. Now weaving was faster, but spinners could not spin thread fast enough to keep up. James Hargreaves invented the spinning jenny in 1764 to allow one person to spin dozens of threads at the same time.
But threads produced on a spinning jenny often broke. Richard Arkwright solved this problem in 1769 with his water frame, an invention capable of producing stronger thread. The water frame was powered by a waterwheel turned by a fast-flowing river.
These machines were too large and expensive for ordinary workers to use in their own homes. Owners of textile businesses began building factories where they could install multiple machines to make textiles faster than ever before. Now workers would come to the factories to make fabric.
Resources Great Britain had plenty of rivers, and its earliest factories took advantage of the water power they provided. Eventually steam engines replaced water wheels, and they needed coal to fuel them—and Britain had an abundant supply of coal. Now factories could be built away from rivers, in more places than ever before.
Great Britain also had a steady supply of fiber. Britain had a long tradition of raising sheep for wool, and wool production more than doubled between 1700 and 1850. British textile merchants also imported cotton from Great Britain's colonies in India and the Americas, and later, the United States.
By the time Great Britain industrialized, it had already built an extensive network of canals. Canals were a relatively cheap and quick way to transport goods.
Transportation Great Britain also had a good transportation network. Britain had many navigable rivers and seaports that had long made coastal trade possible. By the 1770s it had built a system of well-maintained toll roads. Moving goods by road was slow, however, so Britain created a nationwide network of canals. Goods and raw materials could travel faster and more cheaply along canals.
Eventually, the steam engine was applied to transportation, resulting in the development of the steam locomotive and the development of railroads.
Soon, steam locomotives crisscrossed the country on a complex network of rails. By 1852, Great Britain had built some 7,000 miles of track. Railroads carried heavy loads of food and freight quickly and reliably, helping create a national market for goods. The economy boomed as manufacturers could create a product in one location and sell it anywhere in the nation.
