The Last Spike, by Thomas Hill, (1881)
The Industrial Revolution ran from the late 1700's through the 1900's...that's over 300 years of inventions just popping up here and there...and changing the world!
Of course there was a lot more going on than just inventions but that's history for another day.
It was the time of Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla, Alexander Graham Bell, Henry Ford, Rudolph Diesel, Samuel Morse...Just to name a few...and I bet you can tell the invention of each of these contributors, just by their name!
It was a glorious time and the world was changing so quickly, there was hardly time to think about one new device when something else came along.
