  • This map, identified as 'Section 37' forms part of the original hand coloured Descriptive Map of London Poverty compiled by Charles Booth and his assistants. The large map, adapted from an Ordnance Survey map of London from 1869 has been cut into 60 sections, possibly following its donation to the London Museum in 1927 by Sir George Duckworth, (1868-1934) one of Booth's assistants and older half brother to the author Virginia Woolf.
