The red granite kerbstone marks the site of the historic Broad Street pump associated with Dr. John Snow's discovery in 1854 that cholera is conveyed by water.
Site: John Snow Public House (3 memorials)
W1, Broadwick Street
When we first published this c.2009, the pump was on the north-east corner of the Broadwick Street / Poland Street junction. 2018: Londonist reported that the pump has been reinstalled, so we took a new photo.
