Broad Street Pump* On March 12 we gathered around the virtual Broad Street Pump to recognize the incalculable contribution to public health and epidemiology of Dr. John Snow.

John Snow

This event was a joint effort of the LinkedIn Water History Group.

March 15 was the 200th Birthday of Dr. John Snow who, by persistent, scientific tracking of the cholera outbreak in 1854 London, identified the source as contaminated water at the Broad Street public well and pump.

Prior to this conclusion, it was widely believed that the source of cholera was 'bad air' or even hysteria.

A full archived set of recordings is available as individual sessions on our YouTube Channel
