Explain how life in cities improved in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Be sure to describe innovations in the public transportation and travel as well as how technology helped solve some of the problems of crowding.
My answer: In late 1800s and early 1900s, many immigrants chose to come to America for a better life. The more immigrants came, the more crowded the population became. Technology and transportation needed to improve for the people. Steam engines made railroads become a popular and easier way to travel, and technology like the first telephone helped people connect.
