A nice plan of the Ideal Town of RICHELIEU - 'intra-muros'

This A3 detailed 1 : 2000 plan of the Ville de Richelieu 'within-the-walls'

It's fascinating to see how different the footprint of each building actually is, behind those regular facades.

I have just successfully downloaded the file 3 times from Scribd. I think Scribd is almost over-run by users and as a result is very slow and tetchy. It really does take some patience. I'm sorry it such a bore but I can't at the moment find another 'free' document embed service for blogs. Got any other suggestions? I'll go looking on the web right now, because it bores me too that a 500k file tales so long to stream down. Of course once you have successfully downloaded the town plan file, you can hold it on your own machine and not bother Scribd anymore.

Scribd document now replaced by a jpg file. Much easier to download and less troublesome although of less detail.
