Across the decades, photographers from the Bristol
Evening Post and its predecessors have been faithfully
recording life in the city to produce a precious archive
of Bristol and its suburbs as they used to be.
Narrow roadways have become dual carriageways, horse-drawn
vehicles have disappeared from the streets, the trams
have come and gone, and whole areas have been redeveloped
as green fields became new estates. Areas like Brislington
and Clifton, once separate villages, have been encompassed
by the spreading city. And throughout these momentous
changes, photographers have been on hand to capture
the ever-changing story.
Now this wonderful record is available in a new paperback
format to entrance a new generation of readers. The
quality of the photographs and the reproduction will
make this most enthralling pictorial view of bygone
Bristol a delight for readers across the city.
