The ninth issue of the esteemed Gatehouse Gazette has just been released.
This issue is all about industrialisation. In other words: The dominant real-world effect hailing from the era in which Steampunk is set, and the benefits that came with it.
Despite all the ills industrialisation caused and causes (workers‘ exploitation, pollution, rampant urbanization, industrialised warfare) it also created the infrastucture, productivity and basis for advances in science and technology which today provide the highest standart of living the world has ever seen.
So, take off your gloves, wash your hands and klick on the image to enyoy:
