Fascinating maps devised by Charles Booth. An early example of social cartography, each street is coloured to indicate the income and social class of its inhabitants. Select your street in SE1 and see how it's moved up the poverty ladder (I hope).

I've always been fascinated by these maps, they are endlessly interesting.

Yeah - good to see them online. I have a set of paper facsimilies of the maps which I never got around to framing.
