History Walk – IN THE STEPS OF SNOW
(Part of LSHTM Week)
In 1854 Dr. John Snow demonstrated that a sudden outbreak of cholera was due to contamination of a water pump in Broad Street, Soho. On this walk we shall explore the history of the outbreak and also the history and architecture of the Bloomsbury and Soho areas. The walk, led by popular guide and public health doctor Ros Stanwell-Smith, will take around 1.5 hours and end at the John Snow pub in Broadwick Street in the centre of Soho, where we can see the newly restored pump monument to the outbreak.
Wednesday, 19th September 2018, 5.30 pm, meet in the foyer of the LSHTM, Keppel Street Building
