Archival/Digitisation history

Immediate source of acquisition or transfer


Charles Booth’s enquiry (1886-1903) was a ground-breaking social investigation into late-Victorian London. The enquiry’s most famous outputs are the poverty maps which showed street-by-street levels of wealth and poverty. LSE Library holds Booth’s original notebooks and 2nd edition maps which formed the basis for his publication, 'Life and Labour of the People in London'.
