Replacing putrid gas lamps also made the smell of factories better for the workmen who worked there.
The presents considerable materials from the online archives of the Chicago History Museum, and is available online from the the Chicago Historical Society.

By 2020, the United Nations projects that 47. Industrialization and urbanization affected Americans everywhere, but especially in the Northeast and Midwest. Characteristics of Industrialization and Urbanization: Process: Industrialization: Industrialization is the primary process.
This gave rise to a burst of suburbanization, a spate of new towns on the outskirts of American cities where wealthy and middle-class people could move to escape from the difficulties of modern urban life but still be close enough to enjoy many of its advantages. Immigration and migration: Low crop prices. Thus these factors will be explained in this paper. Industrialization leads to urbanization through the creation of jobs. Under the special political, social and economic circumstances, the historical trajectory of China's urbanisation in the past six decades is unique in the world.

He improved his production methods over time which included introducing and improving upon the assembly line so that he could produce them more cheaply and efficiently. It is noted that each of the city named above has got its level of economic, environmental and social prosperity. A number of excellent studies of important industries during this period show how industrialization progressed in some detail. Technological advances: Mass transportation began to replace horse drawn carriages. Cities in America date back to the beginning of the colonial period, but the tendency for new industrial factories to be located in or near urban areas meant that cities grew much faster during the late 19th century than ever before.
Edison built the first central generating station in New York City later that same year. The negative effect brought political controversy resulting in riots, poor working conditions, child labor, death of workers, greed for the rich and immigrants also wanting to work and the positive effect was improving and developing the south.

There are are several factors that have been given as to why the industrial revolution started first in Britain.
To serve these activities it requires centralized sites of production, distribution, exchange, and credit. If a city had annexed much of the land around it previous to these economic expansions like Detroit , those areas became parts of a larger city.

Frontier historians were never at a loss to explain how and why the Western fringe of the American population was at its social, cultural, and political center. In contrast, China keeps her organic matter cycle intact and feeds a population four times as large as ours on an equal cultivated area. Perhaps more important than mass production was mass consumption, since continual productivity improvements meant that Ford could lower the price of the Model T every year, while simultaneously making small but significant changes that steadily improved the quality of the car. Due to the growing population in the north, the factories were also over populated with workers including children.
Steel skeletons meant that the unornamented higher sections of a building could be worked on even before the inevitable elaborate ornamental fringes on the lower part of the building were finished. By 1902, there were 2,250 electrical generating stations in the United States. Secondly, urbanization process leads to inequality of life quality. Therefore, this essay will argue that urbanization does not lead to an equitable society.
