What were the effects of the Industrial Revolution?

Answer

The Industrial Revolution was a period of technological development that took place in Great Britain from the mid 1700s through the mid 1800s. The Industrial Revolution brought about economic and social changes as a result of the move from hand tools to power tools and from small-scale production to large-scale production. The shift to manufacturing in factories caused people to leave rural areas for urban centres creating overcrowded and polluted cities.
