A re-engraving of a map first issued in Harrison's History Of London, c.1775. After the Fire of London some of the great minds of the day conceived plans for its reconstruction - Sir Christopher Wren assisted by Robert Hooke and also Sir John Evelyn. Such plans, though never carried out, should be categorized as part of the English renaissance, for their designs were much influenced by the builders of Roman colonial cities. Today the City of London contains many modern buildings but we must thank the post-Fire dwellers and property owners for much of the character that has survived. For they insisted that the ancient boundaries and therefore street layout stayed largely unchanged in the reconstruction. Adams, London Illustrated, 61(28), Later state: "Downes sc."
