Henry Explores London's Broadstreet Pump

When he was in London recently Henry took time to explore the Broadstreet pump, having learnt about it in his history lessons.

'I was in London with my uncles in the Soho area when I remembered the old water pump on Broad Street (now called Broadwick Street ) that was the source of a major cholera outbreak in 1845, and I wanted to visit it because I enjoyed the topic we did on it in humanities. When we arrived there was a monument of the pump in the place of the old one, and a pub called the John Snow after the doctor. '
