An extract from the text:

Britain in Victorian times

Queen Victoria was Queen of the United Kingdom from 1837–1901.  This period is called the ‘Victorian era’.

The Industrial Revolution began in the 18th century.  When Victoria became queen thousands of people lived in towns and worked in factories.  The factories made a lot of products and Britain became very rich.  However, they also made a lot of pollution so the air was very dirty.  What is more, the factories were dangerous places.  Children worked in them and many had accidents.
