The distribution of housing price in Britain, 1989.

Grey shades of an equalized price scale from building society records (Appendix D), transferred to over 10,444 wards on an equal population cartogram software by author on an Archimedes computer.

The picture has changed very little since 1983 (Plate LXXX). The lowest valued wards have shifted, in London, nearer the centre, and the prices in the very centre of Aberdeen have collapsed, for example. Perhaps the white mass has grown a little in size, and the dark areas become somewhat more concentrated. The general picture, like that of the occupations of the people who live in these houses is, however, very much the same.
