London’s health records open up with the launch of London’s Pulse

“From smallpox to sun lamps, the health of London and Londoners over 125 years is uncovered with London’s Pulse, an ambitious digitisation project from the Wellcome Library which launches today supported by Jisc. The online resource contains over 5000 fully searchable reports, from 1848 to 1973, detailing the health of Londoners in intimate detail – borough by borough and often street by street – written by the people responsible for keeping the city healthy over a period of drastic social, economic and technological change.” (via Jisc)
