Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskning


According to several urban historians, the roots of modern shopping streets lie in the
eighteenth century, when shopping was invented as a social activity. With these
came a new type of city space, the shopping space, where luxury retailers clustered
to attract the most customers. Through census records, this paper analyses Copenhagen’s
occupational geography to study if and how a shopping space emerged within the city.
