The London School of Economics
Presenting the diversity and dynamism of late-19th century London through the milestone 1886-1903 survey maps and notebooks of social reformer Charles Booth (1840-1916). Analysing and colour-coding every street in London, Booth’s report into the minutiae of living and social conditions in the city remain a fascinating resource for family and social historians. Ranking streets from the ‘vicious, semi criminal’ to ‘well-to-do’ and ‘wealthy’, Booth’s survey demonstrated that 35% of Londoners lived in grinding poverty and collected insightful interviews with inhabitants of every trade, class, creed, and nationality. Gathered together for the first time in one volume, facsimiles of 60 hand-coloured preparatory maps alongside the 12 final printed versions. Plus hundreds of illustrations from the notebooks and evocative period photography of shops, streets and workers. With expert contextual essays. Published in association with the London School of Economics.
