The 1854 Cholera Outbreak of London
Cholera, Broadstreet pump, London, John Snow, Industrialization, Water Management
Our project includes an overview of Cholera explaining many symptoms and the history of Cholera. We also do a deep dive into the outbreak of 1854 in London and Broadstreet area to get a better picture of the cause and effect that Cholera had. John Snow was an important figure in the isolation of the disease and the link between the Broadstreet pump and the sickness affecting the citizens. The last area of discussion is the outcomes from Cholera, specifically the medical and infrastructure advancements that came from the discovery of the disease.
