Water Pump Tooting dated 1823


Water Pump Tooting dated 1823

The people of Tooting had had enough of not having access to fresh water (they had to walk over 280 feet to get some) and even more irritating was the fact that they knew that Streatham,which was just down the road was positively swimming in it and this is how the water pump came about.At the time Tooting was a small village,as was Streatham.Unbelievable now isn’t it.
