Landscape, display and identity

This book explores the influence of imperialism in the landscapes of modern European cities including London, Paris, Rome, Vienna, Marseilles, Glasgow and Seville. The first part considers some ways in which the design of urban landscapes articulated competing visions of the imperial city, including large-scale planning and architectural schemes, urban design and public monuments. The final shape of the Queen Victoria Memorial in London suggests an oddly tenuous relationship between the creation of imperial space and the representation of the empire itself. The notions of empire and romanità are expressed through the location, styling and form of the Vittoriano in Rome. The second part of the book considers the role of various forms of visual display, including spectacular pageants, imperial exhibitions and suburban gardens, in the cultural life of metropolitan imperialism. The material transformation of Paris with rhetorical devices reveals a deep-seated ambiguity about just how 'imperial' Paris wanted to appear. Sydenham Crystal Palace housed the Ethnological and Natural History Department, and its displays brought together animals, plants and human figures from various areas of the globe. The largest part of imperial Vienna's tourist traffic came from within the Austrian lands of the empire. The last part of the book is primarily concerned with the associations between imperial identities and the history of urban space in a variety of European cities. The book considers the changing cultural and political identities in the imperial city, looking particularly at nationalism, masculinity and anti-imperialism.

Although Wickham Steed attributed the lack of foreign visitors to the city’s lack of soul, a more pragmatic reason was Vienna’s position, well to the east of the most important European tourist routes. 5 In the early twentieth century the number of foreign visitors

level of suspicion from the Napoleonic state comparable to that encountered in Imperial Vienna. 70 Gall died in the French capital on 22 August 1828, having apparently built up an enduringly successful medical practice over twenty years as a conventional physician. In Britain, reports of Gall's Continental symposia failed to provoke the formal censure of the state but drew instead a characteristically satirical dismissal from the popular press. By October 1805 Gall had travelled through northern
