Why the broad street pump?
In 1854, Dr John Snow observed that most cases that occurred in the first few days of an explosive cholera epidemic, in London, occurred in close proximity to Broard St. parish pump, from which 89% of people who died, regularly drew water. He persuaded the vestrymen of the local parish of St James to remove the handle of the pump whereupon the plague immediately abated.
