Abstract

Patrick Geddes (l854–1932) is today best known for his renewal work in Edinburgh's Old Town, which relied on, and reinforced, the romantic image of Edinburgh's historic centre. Accordingly, it is often assumed now that Geddes rejected the rational planning principles of Edinburgh's New Town, but the evidence presented in this paper shows that he held the reverse position.
