This project we drew 2 drawings of the same landscape except in different time periods: Pre and Post industrial revolution, on 2 a3 pieces of paper
I enjoyed drawing the bridge, because I needed to look at other photos of steel bridges to get an idea of what to do. I done the after industrial revolution, and Axel did the pre industrial revolution drawing. Next time, I would make the post industrial revolution drawing more polluted, because all the factories made everywhere darker, also change the species of moths to adapt to the pollution. Another important thing which would make the drawing more appealing would be using a wider variety of tone, and perhaps adding some color.
Some advantages of living in post industrial revolution would be that you get to see more sports like football games, becuase of the more advanced transportation. Also there would be faster postal service, so if you are rich, life would be a lot better.
However, there are major drawbacks. The most worst would be pollution and child labor. If you are poor, life would be really hard, and you would probably die of disease or starvation. Schools would be really strict, and there would be a cane for punishment.
Before the industrial revolution, everything was simpler, cleaner, and friendlier. Schools were the same, but industries were cottage run, and children didnt work. If was a child, I would far prefer pre industrial revolution life.
Drawbacks of pre indusrial revolution life would be: Not so much technology, and life would be very hard if you were the working class.
