|A Plan for Post-Fire London|
London, c.1776. After the disastrous fire of 1666 both Christopher Wren and John Evelyn submitted comprehensive plans for the rebuilding of London. This plan shows Evelyn's attempts to promote a linear road system, with regular open junctions suitable for markets, marked with a 38-point key. However both schemes failed, due to the nightmare of private ownership, astronomic cost predictions and the need to get the City operational as soon as possible.
