4,100.  The planet was being destroyed by manufacturing processes, and what was being manufactured was lousy, by and large.  (Earth & Manufacturing)  Kurt Vonnegut

 

 

5,799.  England was already the leading manufacturing nation.  (Evolution & England & Manufacturing)  Jacob Bronowski, The Ascent of Man 1973: The Drive for Power 8/13     

 

 

28,882.  Henry Ford had created a new kind of car ... The assembly line completely changed manufacturing for ever.  (United States & Car & Manufacturing & Factory)  The Men Who Built America VIII: The New Machine

 

 

30,440.  Britain earns itself a new title – the Workshop of the World.  (Great Britain & England & Manufacturing)  The British V: Superpower

 

 

30,447.  Britain leads the world in manufacture, trade and engineering.  But at a terrible human cost.  (Great Britain & England & Manufacturing & Industrial Revolution & Engineering)  The British VI: Tale of Two Cities

 

 

31,186.  His factory on the Tyne became Britain’s largest manufacturer of guns and warships.  With the profits of war Armstrong built his very own stately home ... In 1887 he became Baron Armstrong.  (England & Great Britain & Manufacturing & Factory & Arms)  Jeremy Paxman, The Victorians: Having It All

 

 

31,211.  They had pioneered the age of steam.  They made more than half the world’s industrial goods, and three-quarters the world’s trade was carried in British ships.  But despite this success Victoria’s cities were pits of poverty and deprivation.  (England & Great Britain & Steam & Manufacturing & Trade & Cities & Industrial Revolution)  Empires: Queen Victoria’s Empire III: The Moral Crusade

 

 

42,770.  From the 1970s, there has been a significant change in the US economy, as planners, private and state, shifted it toward financialisation and the offshoring of production, driven in part by the declining rate of profit in domestic manufacturing.  (Profit & Economy & Manufacturing & Production)  Noam Chomsky

 

 

49,188.  One of the glories of the industrial revolution for which we should all get down on our knees and give thanks was that people went from wearing this to this: in the nineteenth century we will be mostly wearing cotton undergarments.  Cotton wasn’t just more comfortable, it was healthier too.  (Cotton & Textiles & Industrial Revolution & Manufacturing & England & Great Britain)  Mark Williams, Industrial Revelations: Pants for Everyone e2

 

49,189.  All of a sudden cotton was cheap.  And that was a revolution.  (Cotton & Textiles & Industrial Revolution & Manufacturing & England & Great Britain)  ibid.

 

49,190.  Cotton – much more difficult to spin than wool.  Has a short staple length ... The Spinning Jenny worked on the same principle as the Spinning Wheel ... The Jenny took cotton out of the home and into the workshops, sounding the death-knell for spinning as a cottage industry.  (Cotton & Textiles & Industrial Revolution & Manufacturing & Factory & England & Great Britain)  ibid.

 

49,191.  They smashed the new machines and rioted and people died.  So if you wanted to make a profit from this new technology you had to protect your investment.  (Cotton & Textiles & Industrial Revolution & Manufacturing & Factory & England & Great Britain)  ibid.

 

49,192.  Cromford was to become Britain’s spin-city.  (Cotton & Textiles & Industrial Revolution & Manufacturing & Factory & Great Britain & England)  ibid.

 

49,193.  Beautiful patterned cotton from India was all the rage.  (Cotton & Textiles & Industrial Revolution & Manufacturing & Great Britain & England)  ibid.

 

49,194.  Cotton could now be spun in mills on Arkwright’s frames using cheap unskilled labour and the latest water-powered technology.  (Cotton & Textiles & Industrial Revolution & Manufacturing & Factory & Great Britain & England)  ibid.

 

49,195.  It had made Arkwright an extremely wealthy man and turned spinners into factory employees ... The people who worked in this mill couldn’t stop and start, come and go as they pleased as they used to when they worked from home: they were now factory employees.  And they worked when Arkwright told them.  Just imagine the noise.  Arkwright was the prototype mill owner.  These are his workers’ houses.  He invented most of the oppressive working practices we now associate with the bad old days, making women and children work from six in the morning until seven at night for a pittance.  And once a year he made his workers sing his song: ‘Let us all here join as one, and give him thanks for favours done.  Let’s thank him for all favours still that he hath done beside the mill.  Modestly drink liquor about and see whose health you can find out.  This will I choose above the rest – Sir Richard Arkwright is the best.’  Was he really!  It better have been a good tune.  (Cotton & Textiles & Industrial Revolution & Manufacturing & Factory & England & Great Britain)  ibid.

 

 

85,581.  Cream-ware: a very pleasant tea-drinking vessel.  The man who first made this genteel crockery was a hero of the industrial revolution: engineer, scientist, marketing genius – Josiah Wedgwood turned cups and saucers into an international business empire.  (Pottery & Industrial Revolution & Factory & Manufacture)  Mark Williams, Industrial Revelations: Clocking On

 

85,582.  The Wedgewood factory near Stoke ... A production line: consistent quality on a massive scale.  (Pottery & Industrial Revolution & Factory & Manufacture)  ibid.

 

85,583.  This new product used powdered flint for colour and texture.  And was made of white clay and stone from Cornwall and bore clay from Devon and Dorset.  And Cream-ware was the speciality of Josiah Wedgwood.  Master potter, inventor, and one of the great entrepreneurs of the industrial revolution.  (Pottery & Industrial Revolution & Factory & Manufacture)  ibid.

 

85,584.  You can’t put this lot straight into a kiln; you have to make a protective container known as a Sagger.  And this job is known as Sagger-maker’s-bottom-knocking ... Leading to this – the Bottle Kiln.  (Pottery & Industrial Revolution & Factory & Manufacture)  ibid.

 

85,585.  In fifty years revolutionaries like Wedgwood transformed the trade of potter into an industry.  Wedgwood’s manufactory innovations were so well executed and so durable that Cream, or rather Queen’s-ware, is still made today.  (Pottery & Industrial Revolution & Factory & Manufacture)  ibid.

 

 

48,114.  Steam power had finally arrived in the textile industry.  And this is what the boilers are generating steam for: it's a tandem – because there are two cylinders one in front of the other like a bike – compound – because the steam is used more than once – condensing – because downstairs is James Watt’s separate condenser – creating a partial vacuum in this the big cylinder - steam engine!  It develops five hundred horsepower.  (Steam & Engine & Textile & Cotton & Factory & Manufacturing & Industrial Revolution & Great Britain & England)  Mark Williams: Industrial Revelations: Pennine Passage

 

48,115.  Because this is what it’s driving – three hundred power looms.  You can get an idea of how loud it is, but you can’t feel the concrete floor vibrating ... Now everything is powered by steam.  (Steam & Engine & Textile & Cotton & Factory & Manufacturing & Industrial Revolution & Great Britain & England)  ibid.

 

 

48,116.  By the 1760s they could use a Spinning Jenny: a glorified spinning wheel with several spindles: but even it couldn’t keep up with demand.  (Steam & Engine & Textile & Cotton & Factory & Manufacturing & Industrial Revolution & Great Britain & England)  Ronald Top, More Industrial Revelations: Europe - Cotton, Linen and Rope

 

48,117.  Arkwright built a series of mills across the north of England.  This is Cromford: the first.  His appetite for cotton was insatiable.  (Steam & Engine & Textile & Cotton & Factory & Manufacturing & Industrial Revolution & Great Britain & England)  ibid.
