This is a print of sheet 12 of the Map of London Poverty, created by Charles Booth in 1898-9.
This map shows the historic South Eastern District of London, which today is mostly the London borough of Lewisham, with bits of Southwark and Greenwich.
Here are some other towns and landmarks that you can clearly see on this map: Blackheath, Hither Green, Ladywell, Brockley, Honor Oak, Nunhead (and Nunhead Cemetery), New Cross, Deptford, Crofton Park, Lewisham Park, the London Brighton & South Coast Railway, Deptford Lewisham Cemetery, Millwall, Isle of Dogs, and Greenwich Hospital and Royal Naval School.
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 south east London. Add the "Custom" 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.
