The Modern British City.
It is nearly half a century since the publication of H.J. Dyos and Michael Wolff’s The Victorian City, Images and Realities. This workshop will be both an homage and an updating of this seminal project, taking inspiration from its structure and approach of classic Victorian urban history, but applying these to the history of British cities more recently.
