Charles Booth's researchers joined police officers on their London beats to collect the data used to produce the Maps Descriptive of London Poverty, 1898-99.
Six notebooks recording case histories of the inmates of Bromley and Stepney workhouses.
Four notebooks that give an insight into the work and religious life of the London Jewish community of the 1880s and 1890s.
The first part of Booth's survey was the investigation into London poverty which started in 1886 and provided the data for the first edition poverty maps.
Booth's second survey investigated the various trades and industries that operated in London during the late nineteenth century.
The influence and perspectives of religious organisations and charities concluded Booth's enormous enquiry.
