The industrialization of Manchester was successful for the modernization of man, yet its growth also raised many concerns in society. The health issues were one of the major problems raised from the growth of Manchester, since the spread of disease throughout the city was extremely common as presented in Document 6, “The annual loss of life from filth and bad ventilation is greater than the loss from death in modern wars”. This shows how the rapid growth of Manchester created unsafe areas that easily allowed illness’s to be spread.
