comment When Did Commerical Studio Photography Become Common?
@MichaelF - That's an interesting thought, did limners move from sketching to photography, adapting to technological change? I'll have to look at that angle too.

@T.E.D. - I'm also looking for ads from that time period selling photography as a business opportunity, aka selling shovels to miners. I'm mainly looking at it from a perspective of an invention creating a small business boomlet.

comment When Did Commerical Studio Photography Become Common?
I was looking for the commercial revolution more than the technical one. I'm trying to figure out if there was sort of a "Jeff Bezos" of photography in that time period, someone who took the inventions and commercialized/popularized their use without being a technical innovator themselves. I'll edit the question to make it clearer.

comment Did any of the 50 Destroyers swapped for bases with Great Britain in 1940 sink any Axis military vessels?
The Wikipedia link you provided has links to each ship's battle history. I glanced through a few and found that most had engaged U-boats and torpedo boats (aka E-boats).

comment When did propaganda or the influence of Media first start to have effect?
I guess you could also include scary witch doctor masks and such as propaganda if you wanted to expand the definition that far. Your article link on Roman propaganda reminded me of this: youtube.com/watch?v=IIAdHEwiAy8

comment Why did the United Kingdom industrialize first?
Have you read The Wealth of Nations by Adam Smith? He's a contemporary of the times and explains it quite well in a lot of detail.
