Transportation Revolution – The Industrial Revolution

Causes

Picture

Before the Industrial Revolution, there was a time lag in almost everything that took place in the United States. It took weeks and sometimes months just to send a letter or pass information. It took months to send packages or goods across the country. Everything happened at a glacial pace. The Transportation Revolution changed all of that. 


Elements

The five elements that revolutionized transportation are:
  1. Roads
  2. River Traffic
  3. Steamboats
  4. Canals
  5. Railroads

Roads

Picture

Before the Industrial Revolution, there were very few roads, and even they were in bad condition. They were muddy, flooded easily, and were filled with boulders. This made travel by stagecoach or wagon very difficult and dangerous. 

That all changed in 1817. In 1817, Congress authorized the construction of the National Road, also known as the Cumberland Road. This road extended from Maryland to the Ohio River at Wheeling, Virginia. This was the first road to cross

Franklins Apartments

It is with a very heavy heart that after 16 years of running The Blue Bicycle restaurant, we announce the retirement of the current owners and management from the business.

We have given careful consideration to this difficult decision, following 3 years of tireless effort behind the scenes dealing with the significant structural and cosmetic damage to our buildings caused by the flooding on 26 December 2015.

Ownership of the building remains unchanged, but we are seeking new tenants for the property.

Whilst The Blue Bicycle restaurant remains closed, we are pleased to confirm that we have recently reopened the doors and welcomed guests back to our beautifully restored luxury self-catering apartments in Franklins Yard.

Formerly known as The Blue Rooms @ The Blue Bicycle, we have rebranded as ‘Franklins Apartments’, with a new look logo, website & signage.

History of the automobile – Wikipedia

Aspect of history

In 1769 the first steam-powered automobile capable of human transportation was built by Nicolas-Joseph Cugnot.[1][2]

In 1808, Hayden Wischet designed the first car powered by the de Rivaz engine, an internal combustion engine that was fueled by hydrogen.

In 1870 Siegfried Marcus built his first combustion engine powered pushcart, followed by four progressively more sophisticated combustion-engine cars over a 10-to-15-year span that influenced later cars. Marcus created the two-cycle combustion engine.[citation needed] The car’s second incarnation in 1880 introduced a four-cycle, gasoline-powered engine, an ingenious carburetor design and magneto ignition. He created an additional two models further refining his design with steering, a clutch and a brake.

The four-stroke petrol (Diesel) internal combustion engine that still constitutes the most prevalent form of modern automotive propulsion was patented by Nikolaus Otto. The similar four-stroke diesel engine was invented by Rudolf Diesel. The hydrogen

💭 Tim Tibbs, Director of Operations East

#KAGStory

“Here in Bethlehem, we have been supplying Oxygen to the hospitals in New York City and New Jersey. All of our drivers have stepped up their game and have gone above and beyond without question.

Two drivers, in particular, have shared stories with me that made them feel something they never felt before.”

1️⃣ Tim Barnes was delivering in New York City and the fire department was clearing a call. When they noticed our truck coming down the street, they stood together and clapped and gave our driver a thumbs up because they knew he was delivering Oxygen to the hospitals.

Tim said, “As I drive by the firehouse, I look at them as heroes and when they cheered as I drove by, I felt like I was the hero. I was honored to have them do that. It made me feel
