Map of Walworth, Lewisham, c. 1894


This map shows Walworth's mature Victorian landscape, densely urban without a scrap of open space.

The largest institutions are workhouses (Newington on Westmoreland Road, Lambeth at Brook Street and Bermondsey in Tanner Street), but schools, churches and chapels also feature prominently.
