Top 5 Industrial Revolution inventions

The Industrial Revolution thrust people from a predominantly agricultural existence into a more urban style of life. During this time, factories began to manufacture products at accelerated rates and basic goods crafted at home were created large-scale.

  • Steam Power 
  • Food Canning 
  • The Telegraph
