1891 census, or why I hate the bloody sodding archives.

As a matter of academic record, I would like to wish damnation upon Oscar Wilde (‘unidentified hand’ indeed), the Google Maps geeks who persistently refer to Battersea as Wandsworth, and the census-takers who covered the former area during the 1891 census.

As for the man, woman or child who tore the page recording Enumeration District 9 of Wandsworth some time between 1891 and January 2009, I rain curses down upon them.
