Plan of the Potteries, Notting Hill, 1848

The 1848 cholera outbreak affected the residents of the Piggeries and Potteries in Notting Dale with such severity that the Commissioners of Sewers were forced to take action. The average age expectancy was 11 years and seven months. This map was produced to show where new sewers and stand pipes were to be located. Near the bottom of the map is a large pool of stagnant water called 'The Ocean', now covered by Avondale Park, and William Street, later re-named Kenley Street.
