Underground City

Post 1


Bit disappointing not to have any reference to that. Two reasons for the rather unsanitary conditions prior to the construction of the New Town were the loch and the population density (city growth was constrained by a series of city walls and the loch itself). This gave rise to a vertical city where people literally lived one above the other. Gradually, parts became totally built over to the extent that there are whole closes which are now cut off from the outside world. Not to mention the cellars under the bridges.
