Are there any collections of Broadsides in London which could be viewed by the public?

The British Library, but...

There are stacks of them in books. The Bodleian's collection is pretty good and a lot of it is viewable online. So you would need to be after something pretty arcane to want to use the BL.

There's some London ones on my site too, each with full lyrics, plus the True Crime story that inspired the song and a scan of the original sheet.

St Bride's Printing Library, Vaughan Williams Memorial Library, Society of Antiquaries. VWML has microfilms of the Madden Collection which is as big as the Bodleian.

Some university libraries own Gale-Cengage's microfilmed Madden Collection.

Mine doesn't.

I was about to suggest Paul Slade's website, but spotted he'd already posted a link!

Many were printed in the Seven Dials area of London near Covent Garden. But broadsheets were printed in many cities and towns. Vic Gammon has many from Brighton - my home town. But I've never seen those. Many Public Record Offices (for manuscripts not lps!!) have them in their Paris Records archives, e.g. at Chichester PRO in Sussex.

Or get a coy of J Ashton Modern Street Ballads from your library.
