As Britain became more urbanised people moved to cities
like Hull to find work.
Cities became very crowded. Factories and houses burnt
a lot of coal. This meant that cities were smokey and
heavily polluted. This
picture shows the busy docks and the new railways.
Poorer people usually lived
in the city centre near where they worked.
The city centres were very crowded and dirty. Richer
people moved out of the city.
They lived in parks or on tree lined avenues.
