By the end of the 19th century, the rate of inventions had accelerated like never before. The illusion was that man could do anything. Things were getting bigger and better all the time. The new industrialized western world was secure and prosperous. With this fast paced industrial beat, people would find new ways of making money. In their world someone would arrive at a party with a dog wearing a diamond collar. Mark Twain referred to this period as the "Gilded Age". Poverty was still everywhere, but the growing middle class enjoyed leisure time while the upper class showed off their wealth.
