The conditions shown in the image came about most directly as a result of:
The strike which lasted for six months has finished. So many workmen [stayed] out forso long, without starving. We had a terrible struggle, and the chief object of the company was to destroy our union. The company swore that they would not give us more than 86 cents a car, even if they had to keep their works shut for two years. But they had to give way on everything and to give 93 cents a car. A car carries a ton and a half of clean coal...The company got a number of spineless Irish to be blacklegs [strikebreakers] at one of the pits and succeeded in getting hundreds of soldiers to guard them...But as other Irish tended to give way to the turncoats, it was judged that it would be better to compromise, and the struggle was brought to an end.

The industry shown in the cartoon most directly contributed to which of the following developments in the late 1800’s?
We began experimentally with street railways twenty years ago. At present, in NewYork, one pair of horses serves to convey one hundred people, on an average, every day at a rate of fare about one-fiftieth of the old hackney coach rates...There have been sixteen patents issued from one office for other new forms of perfectly smooth and nearly noiseless street pavement. An improvement in our sewer system seems near at hand, also, which will add considerably to the comparative advantages of a residence of towns, and especially the more open town suburbs. Experiments indicate that it is feasible to send heated air through a town in pipes like water...a great saving of fuel and trouble in a very difficult department of domestic economy. It is [also] plain that we have scarcely begun to turn to account the advantages offered to townspeople in the electric telegraph.
Frederick Law Olmsted On Urban Life, 1870
Which of the following was a significant effect of the process described by the author?
Here was a congestion the likes of which I had never seen before. Within the narrow limits of one-half square mile were...thirty-five thousand people, living tier upon tier, huddled together until the very heavens seemed to be shut out. These narrow alley-like streets were one mass of litter. The air was laden with soot and dirt. Ill odors arose from every direction. Here were no trees; no parks worthy of the name; no playgrounds other than the dirty streets for children to play on.
