New Town, Edinburgh Photos
New Town, Edinburgh is acknowledged to be one of the first planned cities. Edinburgh officials held a design competition (1766) won by James Craig, who proposed a grid of streets running between two garden squares. The streets were named for the family of King George III and to symbolize the joining of England & Scotland. The first section built (1820) was Charlotte Square with unified designs by Robert Adam. Subsequent New Town sections were constructed over time using various individual building designs.
