The Poor Maps

I think it’s very fascinating to look at the patterns that appear on Booth’s Poor Maps. The majority of the destitue were clumped in one area, to the northeast of the river, and at the south end was where the most well-to-do people lived. Booth was very dedicated in his mission to show how the layout of the city in regards to the poor/rich was at the time, and it opened a lot of people’s eyes.
