Differentiate the demand for human labour and mechanical power from region to another?

Victorian Britain had no shortage of human labour. Poor peasants and unemployed moved into the cities in large numbers in search of jobs, waiting for work . Since the cities had adequate human labour, the industrialists at the begining did not install modern machinery as workers were available at low wages.
It was only in smaller cities in Britain where human labour was not adequate, the industrialists introduced modern machinery to reduce their dependence on human labour.
Thus we see that the demand for human labour and mechanical power differed from one region to another.
