The coal yard in Kings Arms Yard, Drury Lane, London Featured Print

The coal yard in Kings Arms Yard, Drury Lane, London

Concern over the outbreak of Cholera highlighted this scene at night in the coal yard of The King's Arms Yard in Drury Lane. Here around 17 large families live in small apartments above sheds for animals. Sometimes many cartloads of refuse lie in the yard and the uneven pavement is filled with with stagnant water. Children play in this squalid and miserable place which is a stone's throw away from where the Great Plague broke out in 1665.

The Metropolitan Sanitary Association Dinner, at Soyer's 'Sy

The first public festival held by the Metropolitan Sanitary Association in 1851. With thousands of deaths from diseases such as cholera and typhoid as a result of poor sanitation in the capital city throughout the 19th century, various reforming societies were set up to promote cleanliness and welfare. Charles Dickens was himself a keen advocate of improved sanitation and is recorded as proposing a toast to 'The Board of Health' at this particular banquet.
