Neat! Check out this London Poverty Map from 1898-1899. It turns out that the area I lived in as a student was seriously posh. Hammersmith, the area I lived in with the Snook, looks more like well-to-do farmland. I’d look up the area where the Snook first lived in London – because if it was that ghetto in 1999, it had to have been the ghetto a hundred years earlier – but that site is slow and I’m going to bed.
