The Story of Edinburgh, Paperback / softback Book

The Story of Edinburgh Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

This richly illustrated history explores every aspect of life in Edinburgh.

This book covers the history of the city of Edinburgh from the first Mesolithic explorers who camped on the shores of the Forth some 10,000 years ago to the controversies of modern times.

Taking a wider perspective it explores the ever-changing world resulting from industrialisation, which brought immigrants, wealth and poverty.

Following that, new methods of transport opened up Edinburgh to the wider world.

Now, with its historic architecture the city can become a battleground between developers and motorists who want more space in the central areas and conservationists who wish to protect the city's landscape.
