Commentary: This fold-out diagram was printed in medical climatologist William Farr’s book which argued that cholera was more prevalent in climates which resembled tropical climates, specifically that of India. In this graph, Farr brings together observations of climate patterns with increases in deaths from cholera, suggesting that London’s climate contributed to the spread of cholera.
