Edinburgh: Mapping and Planning the City
Wednesday 10 November at 6.00pm, by Zoom
Edinburgh’s townscape reflects a long history of plans, reflecting various visions for the future. This fully illustrated talk by Chris Fleet, Map Curator at the National Library of Scotland, will look specifically at maps associated with plans, blueprints and projected schemes, many of which were either not fully implemented, or altered in significant ways. Chris looks at the background to these plans, and how the driving motivations behind them changed over time.
