In 1836, John Snow came to London at age 23 to continue his formal education in medicine. Later, after having finished his schooling and certification, he became increasingly prominent in the city, both for work with chloroform as an anesthesiologist and his epidemiological research on cholera. Much occurred in London during his life span, which ended prematurely after 45 years in 1858. The column at left presents references and sites that are specific to Snow's life and interests, linking them to locations on the Reynolds' 1859 map of London. To gain a full appreciation of his thoughts and times, read On the Mode of Communication of Cholera. Then return to the map to gain further insights on Snow's life based on place and time.
