How did Victorian Britain change from a rural nation into a great industrial power? Discover a historical world transformed by new transport opportunities – the steam ships of Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the steam locomotive and the canal network! This book shows how transport was revolutionised by new technology during the Victorian era, with the humble horse and cart giving way to new railways, canals, the Tube and even the very first cars! It also considers how this new physical mobility changed British society, allowing workers to commute further, growing the cities and driving the Industrial Revolution.
“Day in the Life” panels narrate the everyday routines of a Victorian person, giving an insight into people’s real lives, while quotes from novels of the age create cross-curricular links with Literacy. Illustrated with fascinating historic photos and drawings, the book details how the advances of the Victorian age have affected our life today.
