This section combines two views of the Leeds and Liverpool canal:

  • a technical plan made with a view to the future construction of the canal, published in the Gentleman’s Magazine in 1772.


These views will be combined according to several types of interactive effects available on websites; reflect:

  • on the alternative views of such places in the 18th and 19th centuries
  • on their present-day digital interpretations

This is an example of the ’art/technology’ issue
