Recording Poverty and Murder in 19th century Edinburgh

Wednesday 15 December, 6.30 pm, by Zoom

Edinburgh Old Town Association will host John Lowrey, Senior Lecturer in Architectural History at the University of Edinburgh, offering us a talk on the recording methods used in 19th Century Edinburgh to capture life within the Old Town. City architects were employed to record crime scenes in Edinburgh and their detailed drawings provide an insight into a type of domestic architecture (mainly the lodging house) which normally doesn’t feature in architectural histories.
