Perhaps also they may indicate a need to prove that he, despite his humble origins, was as good as the products of the traditional training; perhaps it was a feeling of insecurity, and the desire to ensure that he was firmly established in his profession. With or without these qualifications, it was possible that Snow would have continued in practice as a family doctor in Soho, competent and respected, but unremarkable and unrernembered, but for two events; the introduction of anaesthetics and the return of cholera.

Mackenzie, Northampton. YOUNG, A. 1798. A Farming Tour in the south and west of England 1796 [and 1797]. Annals of Agriculture, 31, 79-80. com) Abstract: John Snow was a physician but his studies of the way in which cholera is spread have long attracted the interest of hydrogeologists. From his investigation into the epidemiology of the cholera outbreak around the well in Broad Street, London, in 1854, Snow gained valuable evidence that cholera is spread by contamination of drinking water. Subsequent research by others showed that the well was contaminated by sewage.

In 1832 William Snow is listed as a farmer in Queen Street, and Richardson describes John Snow as the son of a farmer. In the 1830s William also bought four more houses in Queen Street and rented them out. In 1841 the family moved to a farm at Rawcliffe, then a village to the NE of the city. This transition from unskilled manual worker to farmer, from labourer to landowner, albeit perhaps on a small scale, is notable. Snow (2000a) speculates that William Snow may have made money to buy the farm at Rawcliffe by selling the Queen Street property to a railway company, but where did he get the money to buy these properties in the first place?
