James Watt, who lived in Birmingham 1775-1819 was an inventor whose improvements in steam engine technology drove the Industrial Revolution. He also invented the letter copying machine, which was the forerunner of the photocopier. The light bulb rating 'Watt', a standard throughout the world, is named after him.
