Vintage John Snow Cholera Map of London 1854

From £35.00

In August of 1854, 127 people living on or near Broad Street in Soho died in 3 days. A week later, 500 people were dead. After interviewing with the family of cholera victims, Dr. John Snow found that nearly every case was clustered around a water pump at the corner of Broad and Cambridge streets. This is a copy of the Map he used to chart those clusters and ultimately discover the source of the outbreak.

John Snow’s discovery and role in ending the Broad Street outbreak has many points of significance. It demonstrates shifting views from miasma theory of disease to the germ theory of disease and it’s considered the founding event of modern epidemiology.
