Brycgstowe, 'the place at the bridge', as the Saxon founders of Bristol once called it, is a city of destiny. Once the second port in the country and one of the wealthiest cities in Britain, it has enjoyed centuries of prosperity based on manufacturing, seafaring and trade. Geographically split between the counties of Gloucestershire and Somerset and approached by sea through the dramatic Avon Gorge, the city received a Royal Charter in 1155.It was an industrial city described in the Georgian period as 'by mud cemented and by smoke obscured'. The Bristol of the past is illustrated here in drawings, paintings and photographs, many previously unpublished, from the superb collection held in the Bristol Central Reference Library's Local Collection. They are contrasted with modern colour images documenting the myriad changes the last century has seen in this pleasant city.

About the Author:

Anthony Beeson was born in 1948 into a well-established Brighton family. Having worked at the Courtauld Institute of Art Library, he moved to Bristol in 1972 to become Fine Art Librarian, and over the following thirty-seven years developed the Bristol Art Library into one of the finest British public collections of art books. He is an established author and lecturer having had ten volumes published on the history of Bristol, Brighton and Dorset as well as many articles on antiquities and art in academic journals. He is an acknowledged Classical iconographer and an expert on Roman and Greek art and architecture. He is the Hon Archivist of the Association for Roman Archaeology and a member of the Association for the Study and Preservation of Roman Mosaics and has appeared on the television programme Time Team. In 2000 he reassembled the many hundreds of pieces of the ‘lost’ Newton St Loe Orpheus mosaic in the entrance hall of Bristol museum and in 2017 interpreted and produced the official report on the exceptional and internationally famous Roman mosaic of Pegasus and Bellerophon found at Boxford in Berkshire.
