Administrative/Biographical history:

The International Health Exhibition was opened in London on May 8th 1884. It was held at the new exhibition centre in Kensington (on the site currently occupied by the Science Museum and Imperial College). The focus of the exhibition was hygiene and public health and exhibits were included on food, dress, dwellings, water supply, heating, lighting, ventilation, ambulances, schools, workshops and technical education.

The exhibition included a section on 'Old London' which included a replica of a pre-1666 London street. The Times newspaper described it as a "picturesquely built up row of houses representing a lane and street in old London" (Friday May 09 1884, pg 4).
