This is a print of sheet 3 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 Northern District of London, which today is mostly the London boroughs of Camden and Islington. You can see Kings Cross in this historic map, along with Holloway, Clissold Park, and the Great Northern Railway!
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).
