About

Pedestrian Diversions is a youtube channel exploring local history, places of interest, architecture, cool engineering projects, cartography, pedestrian-centric urbanism, and stuff like that.

Pedestrian Diversions on Youtube

It has no publishing schedule; I make and release videos as often or as rarely as my interest, motivation and free time allow.

This website exists primarily to provide easily clickable links to the sources, maps, photos and other assets used in researching and compiling the videos, and search-engine accessibility of the transcripts.
