Toiletry/Hygiene Industry Evolution. . .

Through much of history Europe was a largely agricultural region with a relativity dispersed population, in the late 1700s and early 1800s various inventions entirely altered the continent's production of goods. The industrial revolution triggered a mass migration of people into the cities for employment and permanently transformed the urban landscape. While the industrial revolution profoundly impacted Europe as a whole, the most accessible English language documentation on conditions in Europe during the industrial revolution focuses on the UK.

In the UK, many of the factory workers lived in slums. Contemporary writers described these slums as all being virtually alike. One or two story cottages crowded together on streets often so narrow that people could only pass one another with difficulty. Though the cottages had several rooms, often an entire family would live in a single room. In the most crowded neighborhoods scenes have been described where, indiscriminate of age or gender, 15 to 20 partially or completely unclothed people slept on the floor of a single room.

There was very poor ventilation and the smell was overpowering. In some cities, the streets would fill up with mud to the ankles for months on end. Pure rivers running into the city ran out as black stinking sludge, collected from the runoff of factories and dwellings alike. Coal dust often darkened the air. With these conditions, it is hardly surprising that disease was rampant. Cholera, typhus, typhoid, and influenza were all prevalent. There were also outbreaks of smallpox and whooping cough. The first outbreak of cholera, which is often spread by water contaminated with fecal matter, was in Sunderland, England, in the fall of 1831. In the course of the outbreak, 52,000 died. From 1837-1838, the leading cause of death by fever became typhus which is...
