Uncle John Carr

Transcribed and edited by Corita Myerscough for the York Georgian Society's Millennium Project

Softback, 73 pages
ISBN: 0950 3663 58

Whilst many of John Carr's buildings and bridges survive, we know little about the man and his personal activities. These diaries offer us a window onto his life and provide an understanding of the times in which he and his great-nieces lived.  He was not just an architect - for instance he was Lord Mayor of York in 1770 and 1785.
