1690 - 1700 (Now without cars!)

The population grew very fast in the last 10 years, the population in 1700 is 39.843 inhabitants.

People started to plant food, because London stoped to send it to Quenn Elizabeth, its like if they don’t care about the city anymore. The farms were built in the north part of the city.


Imigrants from another countries, especially Italy, are coming to the city. The mayor William Shartner created a law that says that all Italians must live in Little Italia, but they can work in Queen Elizabeth, because they don’t want to mix the races.

All the imigrants have to pass throught Gate Island, that has a Center where they must go. There, the illegal immigrants are send back to their countries. The ones that stay, have to make medical examination, the sick people go to Quarentine, a far neighbourhood north Little Italia, where they have to live and work there, they cant go to another neighborhoods.



The last decade of the 17th century was marked by two big fires, that hitted the industrial region of Queen Elizabeth, destroying 2 blocks of factories and killing 30 people.


With the population getting bigger, it was decided to build a City Hall, where the mayor Willian Shartner governs the city. The building has a tower with a clock, the only one in the city and reference for everyone.


Between 1690 and 1700, around 7 women were burned accused of being witches. They were burned in front of 10.000 people, like a show, in front of the City Hall.



This painting shows the drama of one of those women. (unknown artist)

Have fun! History is fun
