The prosperity of the Victorian age was built on a period of rapid economic growth that had its roots in the Industrial Revolution. Christine MacLeod traces its development and shows that the process owes as much to evolution as revolution. When Queen Victoria opened the Great Exhibition on 1st May 1851, her country was the world’s leading industrial power, producing more than half its iron, coal and cotton cloth. The Crystal Palace itself was a triumph of pre-fabricated mass production in iron and glass.
