I had an immense advantage over many others dealing with the problem inasmuch as I had no fixed ideas derived from long established practice to control and bias my mind, and did not suffer from the general belief that whatever is, is right.                                        —Sir Henry Bessemer

This man invented steel, a short time before the Second Industrial Revolution, but during the Industrial Revolution, the process to make it became more and more streamlined. This easy to manufacture steel, a very strong and useful material, became a staple of buildings and tools.

INDUSTRIAL STEELMAKING Prior to 1857, steel was available in small quantities produced by either the cementation or crucible processes, which restricted its use. But Sir Henry Bessemer invented a process of enabling molten pig-iron to be turned into steel by blowing air through it in a tilting converter, which came to be known as the Bessemer process. This enabled the production of large amounts of good quality steel at inexpensive rates – a huge leap for modern civilization. (Pictured) An…
