This is a print of sheet 11 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.

This map shows the historic Outside Southern District of London, which today is mostly the London boroughs of Lambeth and Southwark, with a small bit of Wandsworth.

The open fields of Herne Hill can still be seen, as can the Oval - or the Surrey Cricket Ground as it's called here. Who knew that there was such a thing as North Brixton, South Brixton, East Brixton and West Brixton?!

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).
