This map captures the 'Athens of the North' in its 19th-century heyday, with the regular grid of its Georgian New Town, burgeoning Victorian suburbs, and the railways that fuelled the city's growth. A thriving centre of finance and the arts, Edinburgh also had a worldwide reputation for mapmaking; W & AK Johnston was among its most prominent cartographical firms.
