      When another cholera outbreak hit the Soho area of London in , Dr. Snow found a way to test his ingestion theory. Dr. Snow plotted the distribution of deaths in London on a map. He determined that an unusually high number of deaths were taking place near a water pump on Broad Street (now Broadwick Street).Author: Matt Rosenberg.
