Britain could lay claim to being the first industrial nation and was unrivalled in terms of power, influence and production until the 1870s, when she began to be overtaken by the newly industrialised USA and Germany. Industrialisation created wealth for many, but also contributed to poverty and human suffering, bringing about social and political change.
