According to the Census of 1901 the population of the Borough
was then 51,247. At the previous Census of 1891 the population for
the same area was 47,988, so that the population has increased during

entire Administrative County of London for the same period was

been slightly below that of London generally. In this Report the

between 1891 and 1901, amounts to 51,328.
