  • Charles Booth's London Poverty Maps

    Folks,
    I attach a link to the forthcoming publication of "Charles Booth's London Povert Maps".
    A tad expensive perhaps, but maybe one for your Santa List.

    I also attach a link to Booth's maps on the internet.
    Many of the serious researchers on this forum may be already familiar with it, but I hadn't come across it before, and I confess, I find it absolutely fascinating.

    Looks like a good one to get Barn even if it is a bit expensive. Maybe time to start dropping out a few hints

      The Booth Archive is held at the LSE. Of the 450+ notebooks compiled during his survey only 41 have been digitised. There could be some real treasures hidden in them.

      In June, 1887 an economic survey of St. George in the East was undertaken, covering places such as Berner Street, Breezer’s Hill and NE Passage. This hasn’t yet been digitised, but it’s available to the public at the LSE library.

        I've had the 10 pound version by "oldhousebooks.co.uk" for years. Two maps, one covering the west and one covering the east. For some reason one of my maps is more worn than the other!
