Elle Reagan's curator insight, May 26, 9:28 PM

I thought this article was informative in that it shared some specific facts about how the Industrial Revolution really affected the population and living conditions. Houses were built back to back and a backyard was nonexistent. Pollution was also very backed up with the new spurt in population, making the cities of Europe smelly and quite dirty.

Bella The Non-Vampire's curator insight, January 16, 10:05 AM

     The Industrial Revolution happened many years ago. The Industrial Revolution is misleading because it didn't happen overnight. The Industrial Revolution resulted in new social, economic, and political inventions, not just industrial ones. Over the years it started to change into a new setting. It started in Great Britain but eventually it spread out in other areas across the world.
