Posted the student project on "The Prison System of Early Modern London." This project was written by Tara Drouillard and posted to the closed University of Windsor site in 2001. I edited it lightly and re-encoded it for the mapoflondon.uvic.ca site. It is visible at http://mapoflondon.uvic.ca/render_page.php?id=PRIS1. Bibliographic reference to Baker is not clear; will have CvdM check it out.
This project allows literary and scholarly works (primary and secondary) to be associated with locations in London, providing the reader with a richer understanding of the works.
