Mapping Rich and Poor: Charles Booth's Enquiry into London Life and Labour

Mapping Rich and Poor: Charles Booth's Enquiry into London Life and Labour
 
  2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

This talk is a must for anyone researching their family history and for local historians in London.

Indy Bhuller concentrates on how Charles Booth began the ‘Inquiry into the Life and Labour of the People in London’ in 1886 and the final publication which ran to 17 volumes. With the help of a team of investigators, he filled 450 notebooks with information regarding the living conditions and the working and social lives of Victorian Londoners. The Inquiry also produced the Maps Descriptive of London Poverty which assigned each street in London (outside of the City) a colour based on its ‘social condition’.

There are no special entry requirements for this talk and you do not need to be a Member of the Society of Genealogists to attend. Expect a friendly atmosphere, an expert tutor and lots of detail.

Cost: £8.00
