Industrial Revolutions - First Day Cover for only GBP £8.35
The first Industrial Revolution, as it is often called, was based around the harnessing of water and steam power, the use of new materials, the expansion of textile manufacturing and the development of canals and railways, among other things. The Electric Revolution built on these advances but focused on the harnessing of electricity, which would bring sweeping changes in communications and daily life. This stamp issue celebrates the ingenuity and pioneering spirit behind some of the most notable inventions and scientific and engineering advances that enabled these ‘Industrial Revolutions’ to take place.
