This is a print of sheet 2 of the Map of London Poverty, created by Charles Booth in 1898-9. This is a square print and you can order it in any square size up to 18x18 inches (45x45cm). 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.
This map shows the historic North Eastern District of London, which today is mostly the London borough of Hackney. London Fields and Hackney Downs can be clearly seen on this map, along with the empty marshlands of Clapton and Hackney Marshes.
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 north London. Add the "Customised" map 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).
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.
