The harnessing of Power - How 19th century transport innovators transformed the way the world operates

The harnessing of Power - How 19th century transport innovators transformed the way the world operates

Overview

The speaker Max Lay (AM) will describe the enormous transport legacy created in the 19th century; how it arose and reached its transformative stage.Initially there was a strong British influence as the Industrial Revolution started, but this decreased as France and south-west Germany became the dominant change makers towards the end of the century. The innovations were due to individual inventors and innovators rather than corporations. How they achieved their successes will be discussed.
