Sir Christopher Wren's Plan for Rebuilding London

Wren's plan for the rebuilding of London was a vision of great straight boulevards and piazzas, wiping out the medieval tangle of alleys and laneways and anticipating the great urban boulevards of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. It was never adopted, mainly because home and business owners began to rebuild on the foundations of their old premises before any new streets could be laid out. The lighter shaded aras above show the extent of the Great Fire.
