Telegraph Hill 1856

Bill, a commenter at a previous post, has pointed me in the direction of an interesting 1856 map of London waterworks. As he notes, Telegraph Hill is clearly named as such on this map.

Immediately to the South West of Telegraph Hill, Nunhead Hill is shown - this is the area now partly covered by Nunhead cemetery.

we should honour the memory of the Gas Workers Union who fought for a living wage against the establishment on this spot
