Blue, green, and black plaques—they are everywhere in Bristol, on houses, bridges, and even on a river bank. But have you ever wanted to know more than the brief details they tell you about the person they honor? There are fascinating and colorful stories behind each of the 100 plaques in the city, which venerate a variety of artists, inventors, and scientists, as well as normal folk who have done extraordinary things. This handy guide is for all the curious, who want to know more about people who lived and worked in the city in times gone by. The first volume of its kind, it is the only reference book to contain all the potted histories of Bristol’s plaques.
