This is an invaluable aid for those wanting to get a grip on the socio-economic influences of Victorian London. It's from the LSE and says:

Charles Booth's London enables you to search the catalogue of over 450 original notebooks from the Inquiry into Life and Labour in London (1886-1903), view 41 digitised notebooks and explore the London poverty maps.

The London Poverty Map is an exceptional resource and well worth checking out - obviously it doesn't include the Greater London we know today but it's pretty comprehensive. The map takes a while to load and has a great zoom and drag feature.
