Title

Roots Of Knowledge Panel S3

Description

With the progress of the 1800s, the pastoral countryside makes way for the mechanized steel of the Industrial Revolution in this window. The advent of railways, canals, and bridges in all their technological brilliance announce the arrival of unprecedented development, but there are costs to this growth. Subtle references are made to a damaged environment and endangered resources. There is also a human toll in the forms of slavery and child labor, as alluded to by Oliver Twist and Mr. Bumble—Dickensian characters invented to create social awareness for these issues.
