Introduction

       
 

Now it is your turn to use some original Census material from 1891 to do a real investigation of an area. The area is Chelsea in London which is mostly very wealthy, a terraced house now costs on average 748,594 compared to the national average of 82,016. Has Chelsea always been like this? What sort of people used to live there? Using the Census we can travel back to 1891 to see what Chelsea was like over 100 years ago.

Remember that this will also show you how it can be done so you can try your own area.
