Forty-first annual report on the health and sanitary condition of the Parish of St. Mary, Islington
consequently the Vestry was saved the cost of replacing them
Comparatively few London sanitary authorities seem to have made
special provision for destruction, most of them destroying infected
articles either in their dust destructors, or in furnaces to which they
have access. A few authorities continue to destroy them on open ground
and in the open air.
From these remarks it will be perceived that Islington occupies a
leading position in the matter of dealing with infected articles.
The cost to the Vestry for disinfecting for the year was under £400.
