Batsford's Cambridge Then and Now

Серия: "-"

Edinburgh Then and Now visually charts the city from the 19th century, with its smoky Victorian reputation as'Auld Reekie', to its twenty-first century present. Using atmospheric archive photography dating back to the early 1860s, the book shows the evolution of the city through the Victorian and Edwardian eras, two World Wars and touches on the social and political upheavals of the 1960s right up to the building of the new Scottish parliament. Some 70 historic photographs of Edinburgh's past are paired with specially commissioned contemporary views taken from the same vantage point. You can see the same streets, buildings and docks as they were'then'and as they are'now'. It includes both old and new parts of the city, plus the historic port of Leith and its recent attraction, the Royal Yacht Britannia. At its heart is the Royal Mile, with nearby St Giles Cathedral and Law Courts, the Royal Museum of Scotland, Surgeon's Hall and McEwan Hall all featured. There are old vistas of George Street, Cockburn Street, the Scott Memorial, Princes Street, Queen Street, St Andrew Square, Edinburgh Castle and The Mound, and Leith docks. Part of the bestselling Then and Now series, this charming contrast of old and new photographs highlights the stunning changes - and the equally amazing similarities - of one of the most loved cities in Britain, its well-known places but also some of its hidden gems. This title features Scotland's first city'then'- with archive photography - and'now'. It features topics from the changing face of the Royal Mile to the transformation of Leith port. This is a wonderful visual guide to Edinburgh from the 19th century to today.
