Discovering Georgian Lauriston: The House and its Neighbours West of Edinburgh.
Looking at Lauriston today there is little to indicate the house had much to do with the 1700s, but what did happen? Neighbouring estates and farms, such as at Drylaw, were being built and developed, and as this happened can Lauriston’s own history be better understood? Dr Anthony Lewis is the curator of Scottish History for Glasgow Museums. He was born, bred and educated in Edinburgh, with his PhD and following book being about the builders of Edinburgh’s New Town, 1767-1795.
