An allegorical map, showing the Salvation Army rescuing people from the sea of ills, which includes starvation, betting, drunkenness and Jack the Ripper! A lighthouse is marked 'Salvation'. Above are 'The City Colony', filled with social enterprises aimed at keeping the masses emplyed and sheltered, and 'The Farm Colony' leading to an emigration port leading to 'The Colony Across the Sea'.
The map was published as the frontispiece to 'In Darkest England and The Way Out', by William Booth (1829-1912), who had founded the Salvation Army with his wife in 1878. The title was deliberately chosen to draw comparison with Henry Morton Stanley's 'In Darkest Africa', published erlier the same year.
