So the Lord sent a pestilence upon Israel, 1841. Creator: Peter Lightfoot

So the Lord sent a pestilence upon Israel, 1841. Biblical scene, from 2 Samuel 24: 15: So the LORD sent a pestilence upon Israel from the morning even to the time appointed: and there died of the people from Dan even to Beersheba seventy thousand men. The plague of the Philistines at Ashdod: the dead and dying lying in the streets after God sent a plague which killed 70,000. The woman in the centre has blood or pus seeping from her armpit. Buboes - painful swellings in the thighs, neck, groin or armpits - are a symptom of bubonic plague. Engraving after a 17th century work by Pierre Mignard

A Court for King Cholera, 1852 Featured Print

A Court for King Cholera, 1852

A Court for King Cholera, 1852. A scene typical of the crowded, unsanitary conditions in London slums. Cholera first appeared in Britain in 1831, and outbreaks occurred regularly in London in the mid 19th century. Its relationship with contaminated water was not understood until established by John Snow (1813-1858). Snow published his theory in a pamphlet in 1849, but did not prove his findings to be correct until another epidemic occurred in 1854. His work led to legislation paving the way for dramatic improvements in all aspects of public health provision. Cartoon from Punch. (London, 25 September 1852)
