ABOUT THE BOOK ABOUT THE BOOK
Synopsis

Synopsis

Two maps of Victorian London colored street by street show the lifestyle of the inhabitants from the wealthy upper classes to the vicious and semi-criminal lowest class. These two maps classify London streets into seven categories from the very poor lowest class mainly in the east end (but with some surprising enclaves in the fashionable west) right up to the wealthy upper classes in Marylebone and Mayfair. A fascinating resource for genealogists and all lovers of London's past.

Charles Booth was appalled by conditions in London's docklands and vowed to do something about it. Realising that the situation needed to be accurately assessed he published numerous surveys that reported on the living conditions, lifestyle and income of Londoners.
