- Charles Booth's vast 1886 survey of London ranks each one of London's streets according to the class of their residents. This series returns to six archetypal London streets visited by Booth to discover how their fortunes have ebbed and flowed over the last 125 years. The fifth episode features Reverdy Road, Bermondsey, which has endured as an enclave of working-class respectability. When Booth visited in 1900, he was impressed by the houses, gardens, and by the broad and clean streets. Older residents recall life on the street during the war, when three houses were bombed, and trips to the hop fields of Kent. They also remember the work of a pioneer of public health, Dr Alfred Salter, who lived in the house on the corner of the street, a house that has been occupied by a doctor since 1880.
