This is a print of sheet 10 of the Map of London Poverty, created by Charles Booth in 1898-9.
This map shows the historic Outside Southern District of London, which today is mostly the London boroughs of Wandsworth, Lambeth, and small parts of the boroughs on the north side of the river.
Battersea Park, Clapham Common, and Putney are all evident in this historic map, along with a large number of railways (including Clapham Junction Station, if you zoom in!)
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).
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 west 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.
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.
