Information:

Industrialisation attracted new migrant populations to the city.  The number of people living in the city doubled in 10 years reaching 2,380,000 in 1930.  From the 1930s onwards the industries moved away to the suburbs.  People had to commute from the centre to the suburbs and transport problems became frequent.
