The Secret History of Our Streets

In 1886 Charles Booth embarked on an ambitious plan to visit every one of London's streets to record the social conditions of residents. His project took him 17 years. Once he had finished he had constructed a ground-breaking series of maps which recorded the social class and standing of inhabitants. These maps transformed the way Victorians felt about their capital city. This series takes six archetypal London streets as they are now, discovering how they have fared since Booth's day. Booth colour coded each street, from yellow for the 'servant keeping classes', down to black for the 'vicious and semi-criminal'. With the aid of maps the series explores why certain streets have been transformed from desperate slums to become some of the most desirable and valuable property in the UK, whilst others have barely changed.
