Entry 26: What have you done for me lately?



It's been 25 Game Years since the region started. In that time, since the first settler, the population grew to 39,790. Farming and industry have taken off. Mines have been found and trees have been chopped.

 Let's have a look at how it's grown.

The first image is of the whole region in 1905. You can't see much, but it gives the whole context.



Now we zoom in to a close up of 1907.  In the first 7 years the region only grew to 627 people, and the villages are small and relatively isolated and surrounded by the forbidding forest. The first small industry appears on the banks of the Dart River.



By 1915 the farms had started to spread and shipping had become an industry, leading to the founding of new port villages.




By 1920 the first railway line had been built.



Finally, by 1926 farming has expanded so rapidly, that cornfields were more common than trees in some areas.
