DID YOU KNOW that Robert Snow's great great great uncle was Dr. John Snow, the leading pioneer in the development of anesthesia in Britain and the first doctor to give an anesthetic to a reigning monarch; Queen Victoria!   In 1854, Dr. Snow also made an historic discovery about how Cholera was transmitted and linked the deaths in the London cholera epidemic to a water pump in Broad Street, Soho.   He removed the pump handle, the epidemic was contained and further deaths were prevented.  UK based charity WaterAid  www.wateraid.org is keenly promoting the work of Dr. John Snow.
