Well, as far as my choice of period of history is concerned, then undoubtedly it would be time span between 1760 to 1840. This time duration is also known as the era of the Industrial Revolution. It always intrigued me to know what other inventions which were made during that time period of industrial revolution. It marked the shift to the mechanized bulk production process from conventional hand production methods. The invention of the steam engine played an essential role in revolutionizing all the sectors. The first one to explore and took advantage of steam power were the textile industries. It also brought the shifting of people from rural areas to an urban area for employment as old ways of manufacturing products were completely outdated due to modern machinery.
It began in Great Britain and from there it spread to Europe, France, Germany, the U.S., Japan and other parts of the world. It introduced newer technologies and modes of communication which changed the lifestyle of people for the greater good. New sources of power such as steam engine and electricity have an influential role in allowing the Revolution to grow. Other great inventions made in that era were the telephone and the telegraph which allowed people to communicate with each other from far away distance. Harnessing the power of steam and electric power was a great success and inventions such as steam locomotives and electric motors and generators, electric incandescent lamp and many others took it to further greater extent.
The variety of factory produced merchandise raised the living standard of people, especially the upper and middle-class people. I wonder sometimes if more inventions were made in those periods which are not made available to the public because of the dangers associated with it or maybe due to the complexity of the devices.
