Very interesting indeed, Eric. On the question of anti-plague intentions by city planners, Foucault cites a 1932 study of 18th century construction in Nantes, which definitely took "circulation" as anti-plague precaution into account. (STP, English translation, 17-23). Now that's quite a bit later than the 17th century reconstruction of post-fire London. But still, I wonder what contemporary urban historians would say about that reconstruction.

By the way, this looks like a fun resource: https://www.bl.uk/learning/timeline/item103694.html
