Did the Georgians lose any sleep at night while they laid waste to vast areas of the medievil city to make way for the wonderfully designed wide streets? Hardly!.
I certainly regret how much of the medieval city was lost to the WSC, in Edinburgh, for example, the Georgian town extended the city rather without destroying so much of it. On another thread the lost of TCD’s early buildings was regretted. Either way, the fact the Georgians destroyed part of the medieval town doesn’t really constitute an argument for demolishing Georgian buildings.
