This is a print of sheet 5 of the Map of London Poverty, created by Charles Booth in 1898-9. These 12 maps of London were an epic undertaking to map out the various levels of poverty and affluence of everyone in London. These are some of the most detailed historic maps of London ever made.
You can order the map itself, or you can order a framed version. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that really makes our maps pop out when on a wall.
I can make a custom version of this map for you. It will look just like a real Poverty Map, but it can focus on a specific area or just a few streets of east London. Add one of the "Custom" map options to your shopping basket, buy it, and then I'll message you to get the exact details of what you want on your unique historic map.
The level of detail in these maps is breathtaking, with individual houses coloured to show whether they are "vicious semi-criminal" (black); "very poor" (dark blue); "poor" (light blue); "mixed" (red); "fairly comfortable" (light red); "middle class" (bright red); "upper-middle and upper class" (yellow).
This map shows the historic East Central District of London, which today is mostly the London boroughs of Tower Hamlets and Hackney. The Tower of London can be seen in this historic map, along with Shoreditch, St Katherine Docks, and the massive London Docks (land which has since been filled in and turned into houses).
