I never realised that the limitations of food transportation and supply were also relevant factors on how big a city could become a few hundred years ago! The talk had been presented in 2009, but it hasn’t lost actuality.
I will start to have a closer look at street names and I find it an interesting idea to imagine the past while wandering around at my next city trip!
I sooo much appreciate that we have our local markets here in Zurich! Check out the markets on Tuesday and Friday either at Helvetiaplatz or Bürkliplatz. Check the entire list of markets in Zurich.
Inspiration source: Found the ted talk on the Swiss blog called delicioustaste. Thought it is an enlightening TED presentation and enhanced it with some more (local) ideas.
