This is a plan of the proposed housing development on the Duke of Bedford's Estate in Bloomsbury, with title and compass at top left, proposed new buildings in pink, and public squares and open spaces in green. With Covent Garden, Bloomsbury was one of the two estates of the Earls and Dukes of Bedford in London. Famous for its squares and terraced houses, developed during the 18th- and early-19th centuries, the estate attracted professional and academic tenants.
