Solution

Once a machine proved effective for one industry, people tried to test its usefulness for other industries too. These attempts resulted in the invention of newer machines. In 1783 Thomas Bell made a machine for cylinder or roller printing on fabric. By 1809 a machine came in use for sticking together the heels and soles of a shoe. Tailoring machines were made. James Watt invented the steam engine. In the beginning, this engine was only used to transport coal and iron ore out of the mines. Later, steam-powered machinery came to be used in the textile industry.

In course of time steam-powered ploughs, harvesters, grass cutting machines were made. These machines could complete agricultural operations in a very short time. In America Robert Fulton, an engineer successfully sailed the steamboat, which was named, ‘Clermont’. The first attempt of using steam engines for road transport was done by George Stephenson. A steam engine for the railway was also produced. This railway engine could successfully cut the distance between Liverpool to Manchester. Later railway services were expanded through Europe. It shortened the time of travel within Europe.
