Manuscript Plan of Cambridge 45
Medium: Pencil on paper
A pencil sketch of the centre of Cambridge showing main streets and Queen's College, Trinity and St. John's College. This is a copy, possibly made in the late 18th century, of part of a plan of Cambridge by Nicholas Hawksmoor dating 1720-30. Hawksmoor was planning some improvements in the layout of the town. This sketch is drawn on the same scale and size as Hawksmoor's drawing, but does not shows all the details of the original.
