alonso: ‘Events, dear boy, events.’ (Harold Macmillan, allegedly.) I think they probably had an economy in 1900 (with a city about half the size), and they had congestion and traffic and trams and just as many pedestrians. And, ah yes, aesthetics and a sense of townscape – how primitive.
Cities need a sense of themselves and developments have to conform to what that sense is; if it’s all just laissez-faire and a shrug of the shoulders, then you’ll get the clutter modern cities (at least on these islands) suffer from.
