What factors shaped the move from colonial, country life to modern, urban life? What was urban city life like during the rise of urbanization? How was it different or similar to modern urban life?
Rise of industry and factories drew people from the countryside to the cities. As new workers flocked to the cities, living conditions were crowded. Modern sanitation techniques weren't readily available in these areas.
Public transportation, the automobile, affluence and good water and sewage systems have changed the urban environment.
