Title: Dear Mother: Great War Letters from a Bristol Soldier
Author: Williamson, Barry
Published: 2003

ISBN: 1904537073
Like countless of his contemporaries, from Bristol Grammar schoolboy, Stanley Booker cheerfully volunteered to fight for his country in the Great War. Joining ?Bristol?s Own? in September 1914, after training at Ashton Gate he was commissioned in the Worcestershire Regiment in the following year and was posted to Maldon in Essex. His letters home tell of the routine of bayonet practice, trench digging and the tedium of waiting to see action at the Front, alleviated by the excitement of dodging Zeppelin raids. After a spell on Salisbury Plain, Stanley saw front-line action in 1916 and his letters from this period culminate in a series of vivid accounts of life and death just yards from the enemy lines near Richebourg.
Title: Death and the Bridge: The Georgian Rebuilding of Bristol Bridge
Author: Drummond, Barb
Published: 2005
Publisher: B. Drummond
ISBN: 0955101018
The medieval bridge over the Avon was built to unite the main city of Bristol to the southern parishes, but by mid 18th century pedestrians were being killed and injured by vehicles. At times the story seems to veer towards farce, with wall builder John Wallis opposing James Bridges the bridge builder. Arguments delayed the rebuilding for years, before the original surveyor left in disgust. Tolls continued for 30 years, only to be ended by a riot.

ISBN: 0950738700
 
Title: Filton and the Flying Machine
Author: Hall, Malcolm
Published: 1995
Publisher: Tempus Publishing
ISBN: 0752401718
Filton, to the uninitiated, is in Gloucestershire and was introduced to aviation in 1910 by Bristol businessman Sir George White, thus was formed the British and Colonial Aeroplane Company. The book touches only briefly on the Great War period, however the British and Colonial Aircraft Company produced what must be seen as the first truly Bristol design, the Boxkite. A large number of these so-called Boxkites were built, and are evidenced in the book's photographs. Another name synonymous with Filton is a young RFC pilot who returned to his drawing board on indefinite leave during 1915, his name was Frank Barnwell. Somewhere along the line the company became Bristol but that's evidently another story. Filton went on to produce aircraft after the war and saw active service as an airfield in WW2 primarily for 501 (Reserve) Squadron. Filton returned to 'weekend' use after 1946, finally disbanded in 1957.

Title: For King and Parliament: Bristol and the English Civil War
Author: Lynch, John
Published: 1999
Publisher: Sutton Publishing
ISBN: 0750920211
In the seventeenth century Bristol was the second city of England. It as the main west coast port, an internationally important entrepot and a rich trading centre. Industry flourished, too, with manufacturing and processing industries like soap making, sugar refining, glass making and gunpowder production responsible for much of Bristol?s not inconsiderable wealth. In consequence, control of the town became one of the chief objectives of both armies during the civil war which raged in England in the 1640?s. Beginning the war under Parliamentarian control, the city changed hands twice, with each transfer having, the author argues, a major effect on the war effort of both sides. This new study argues that when the Royalists captured Bristol in July 1643 they gained not only the city but also the materials and facilities that quite literally allowed them to remain in the war. Under Royalist rule Bristol became a vital centre for military and government activities. Its position as a focus of communications between the west of England, south Wales and Ireland, combined with plentiful accommodation and comparative security, made the city an ideal location for equipping new units. Its shipping and other marine resources were quickly exploited to create a Royalist - as opposed to a ?Royal? -navy. Bristol became both a centre for importing arms for Europe and the Royalist administrative headquarters in the south-west, later almost an alternative Royalist capital. The loss of Bristol in 1645 was therefore a huge blow to the Royalist cause: it now became a parliamentary military garrison and a vital supply base for Cromwell?s war in Ireland. As Clarendon put it: ?The sudden and unexpected loss of Bristol was a new earthquake in all the little quarters the king had left, and no less broke all the measures which had been contrived, than the loss of the battle of Naseby had done.? This book is surely one of the most important written on the civil wars in recent times. Its radical reinterpretation of the pivotal role of England?s second city will ensure it a place on the bookshelves of anyone with an interest in the most turbulent years of the seventeenth century. It will also be an indispensable book for anyone drawn to the fascinating history of Bristol.

Publisher: Redcliffe Press
ISBN: 1904537391
This superbly illustrated book is a celebration of how artists have responded to the finest approach to an inland harbour in the world. It illustrates both Bristol's rich maritime heritage and the unsurpassed collection of paintings, watercolours and drawings in Bristol Museum & Art Gallery. The journey from the heart of the old city to the Bristol Channel is chronological as well as topographical, spanning three hundred years from 1671 to 1995. At the book's core is the famous Bristol School of Artists of the 1820s, particularly Francis Danby and Samuel Jackson. Bristol's outstanding marine painters, Nicholas Pocock and Joseph Walter, are well represented and the book concludes with Bristol's world-famous contemporary artist, Richard Long. Visiting artists are included, from an anonymous itinerant artist of the early eighteenth century, to J M W Turner, John Sell Cotman and the twentieth-century watercolours of John and Paul Nash.
Title: From Gothic to Romantic: Thomas Chatterton's Bristol
Author: Heys, Alistair
Published: 2005
Publisher: Redcliffe Press
ISBN: 1904537200
Even 235 years after his supposed death by suicide, Bristol's boy-poet Thomas Chatterton remains a fascinating and controversial figure. This challenging collection of eight essays questions long-held assumptions about Chatterton's life and offers new insights into the young poet's influence on English art and literature. Snapshots from the book: Jonathan Barry argues that it was Chatterton's impetuosity and limited social circle - and not the supposed philistinism of eighteenth-century Bristol that prompted his premature flight to London. Timothy Mowl argues that, rather than a proto-Romantic, Chatterton was more a Rococo poet living among the eclectic furore of a brash Rococo city. Michael Liversidge assesses how the Chatterton myth encouraged and influenced artistic depictions of St Mary Redcliffe church by artists such as Girtin, Turner and Varley. Nick Groom shows that, successful and relatively secure financially in London, Chatterton had no reason to commit suicide and that the young poet's death could be attributed to an accidental drugs overdose.

From the tail-end of the Sixties and into the Seventies this beautiful 19th century grain warehouse in Bristol's historic dock area became a hot-bed of rock music and outrageously liberal attitudes that is still remembered fondly by its acolytes as "The Old Granary". In The Granary Club - The Rock Years former manager Al Read has collected a chronological record of many bands that played at the club; as many torn photographs and fragments of graphics and as many anecdotes as were capable of being pieced together. Here is the group of misfits who called themselves Plastic Dog and the musicians, artists, photographers, writers and general music freaks who grew out of the place. In fact virtually everyone apart from David Bowie and Pink Floyd tripped on the steps of the tiny wooden stage at one time or another. It chronologically details all the bands that played at the Granary and how much they were paid plus photographs, visuals and memorabilia along with anecdotes from the artists and the club members. Read it and weep for the years of your youth!

ISBN: 0953101320
Bristol can probably claim to have the oldest public open space in the country: Brandon Hill, acquired in the twelfth century. However, the next seven centuries saw few gains of green space for public use and enjoyment. In neighbouring Bath, and later in Weston-super-Mare, the desire to attract visitors was a spur to the provision of parks and pleasure gardens. This motive was lacking in Bristol. It was the report of the unhealthy state of the city published in the mid-nineteenth century, that led to the gradual development of city parks. They have an interesting variety of origins, and include a medieval churchyard and a bombed area in the heart of the city converted to attractive green spaces enjoyed by residents, workers and visitors. Some of the specially created larger parks have lakes and water features, though many interesting features such as bandstands, fountains and Russian guns have gone. Because these city parks form a vital part of Bristol?s environment and heritage, David Lambert?s account of their origin and development is also a plea for conservation and sympathetic maintenance. This volume is illustrated with fascinating early postcard views, line drawings and modern colour photographs.

Title: Holy Wells of Bath and Bristol Region
Author: Quinn, Phil
Published: 1999
Publisher: Longaston Press
ISBN: 1873827903
This book covers the cities of Bristol and Bath, together with the adjoining areas of south Gloucestershire and north Somerset?an area roughly equivalent to the county of Avon recently done away with. The book is in two parts. The initial chapters describe the offerings made in prehistoric times, the life of Roman Bath, the early Christian days when saints were often associated with wells and springs, to medieval days and monastic connections. The tale leads on to the conduits which served Bath and Bristol?the wooden and lead pipes which conducted the water from wells and springs in the surrounding hills to troughs and reservoirs in the towns, and of which there are many reminders still around. The coming of the spas, so important to this area, is also recounted. The gazetteer covers the area parish by parish, detailing their springs and wells, together with the cures, ghosts, stories and customs associated with each. The research has been meticulous, not just from written sources, but also as a result of conversations with local people throughout the area covered by the book. Whilst a great deal of this information has not appeared in print before, much of the rest has been hidden away in obscure works on topography and rarely-seen old maps.

Author: Lewis, Brian & Fisher, Derek & Janet
Published: 2001

ISBN: 1899388281
Hotwells starts from a point just beyond the Clifton Suspension Bridge, covering the area enclosed by the Height of Clifton and Cliftonwood on the northern side, and the New Cut forming the southern boundary, extending along and including the Floating Harbour as far as the SS Great Britain on Great Western Dock. Hotwells like other areas has had its ups and downs, once a famous Spa which attracted gentry from all over the country to take the waters and to socialise in the Spa and surrounding buildings. Fine Houses and Squares appeared. One of these being Dowry Square, started in 1727. The Spa thrived until the house owners of the squares became bankrupt by the end of the l8th century. With the coming of the Floating Harbour in 1809, shipping returned in great numbers to the city docks and with it came employment, for carpenters, ship wrights, and dock labours. Changing what had been mainly agricultural to manual trades and with these trades coupled with the sailors, came the inns which were numerous along side the shops lining Hotwells Road. The area was now firmly working class with its own shops, staying this way until the end of the Second World War. In the 1950s when the dock work started to decline, leading to the closure of the docks at the end of the 1950s. In the 1960s with the lost of Charles Hill & Sons ship building yard and the timber trade leaving the area, the dock declined. The 1980s and 1990s saw the rebirth of Hotwells and the City Docks area with houses, apartments and a Leisure Complex built on the once empty wharves and open spaces. Derelict warehouses being converted into modern homes. The City Docks becoming a marina for all classes of boat.

Ashton Court, in its heyday, was a formidable institution.  It was the centre of enormous estates bridging across three counties.  At one time it was true that everything you could see from Ashton Court was owned by the Smyths; it was the hub of the community.  There, across the park, was the great house ablaze with lights, and from which issued a hum of purposeful activity.  Its owner, Sir Greville Smyth, was the employer of hundreds of miners, and the landlord of scores of farmers; the patron o f all local activities, and the squire to whom the village people touched their caps.  It was the age of great wealth for the few, and grinding hardship and poverty for many.  People new their position in the class system, and most were content. A short history of the Smyth family from the 16th to the 20th century.

Title: John Addington Symonds
Author: Grosskurth, Phyllis
Published: 1964
Publisher: Longmans
ISBN:
British poet, critic, and historian. Born 5th. October, 1840 in Bristol; died 1893.
John Addington Symonds may be considered to be the first British scholar of lesbian and gay issues. He realised that he was homosexual at a very early age and had vivid dreams of being in a room surrounded by naked sailors. At Harrow school his innate timidity and romanticism caused him to be disgusted by the abundant homosexual activity available to the other boys there. His confusion led him to accuse the Harrow headmaster, Dr Vaughan, of loving one of his pupils, and with the help of his father, achieved the removal of Dr Vaughan from the school. This malicious act was to haunt Symonds later in life. Even at this time Symonds was in love with a choirboy, Willie Dyer and twice exchanged kisses with him. However, his father advised that he might be accused of the same as his recent victim, Dr Vaughan. In his mid-twenties, on the advice of his father, Symonds married and went on to father four daughters. However, he and his wife had no passion and they soon lived in separate parts of their house, and Symonds continued to pursue young men as soul mates. Symonds turned to literature as a vocation and became one of the foremost men of letters of his time, famed for his reviews, essays, books of art history, and expositions of poetry. He became a cultural arbiter of the Victorian era. Unknown to most of his contemporaries he began to study homosexual issues. In 1883 he published a 10-copy edition of "A Problem in Greek Ethics", and in 1891 he published a 50-copy edition of "A Problem in Modern Ethics". He also began a collaboration with Havelock Ellis which resulted in the publication of "Sexual Inversion" after Symonds's death (in German in 1896, and in English in 1897). Symonds also wrote his memoirs but handed them to his literary executor, H. F. Brown, who willed them to a London Library with instructions that they remain secret for 50 years. They finally appeared in 1984.

Just who discovered America's Mainland? As Ian Wilson shows in John Cabot, this was John Cabot, and a West Country crew of just 18, who left Bristol, England in May 1497. Sailing for 35 days, they reached the north American Mainland in June. Up to that time, and for more than a year after, Columbus had only found West Indian islands, and to his dying day continued to believe that these belonged to Asia. Reprinted in 2003.

Author: Wright, Mary & Mellor, Penny
Published: 2009

ISBN: 1860776019 or 978-1860776014

Kingsdown was built as Bristol's first planned suburb in the 18th century. At the time it was well know locally as the site of an important Civil War fortification and appreciated as an airy, green space just beyond the crowded medieval city. The land had once belonged to the Benedictine Priory of St James but Henry VIII's Dissolution resulted in the fragmentation of land ownership. The consequent sale of lands to wealthy entrepreneurs in the 16th and 17th centuries provides the first documented description of Kingsdown.

The Georgian suburb which appeared during Bristol's golden age became increasingly fashionable, but economic collapse following the outbreak of war with France led to the financial ruin of many of the investors and developers. The Victorian and Edwardian periods were a time of consolidation, sanitary improvements and growing urbanisation, as Kingsdown was incorporated into the City of Bristol. Improved transport links and the attractions of the outer suburbs drew residents away from the inner areas and Kingsdown's social status slowly declined, its physical fabric subsequently deteriorating.

A lack of maintanance, coupled with Second World War damage and the post-war zoning of the Kingsdown slopes for hospital expansion and municipal housing, resulted in the 1950s clearance of those houses deemed to be unfit. Passionate protests accompanied their destruction and are recalled in this lively illustrated account of a fascinating and singular area. The story ends on a positive note by celebrating the survival of the streets on the hilltop. The area's architectural qualities are the subject of growing appreciation and a vibrant community makes the care for Kingsdown's unique heritage a priority.

Title: Life in Victorian Bristol
Author: Reid, Helen
Published: 2005
Publisher: Redcliffe Press
ISBN: 1904537405
Filled with amusing stories, this illustrated book looks at almost every conceivable aspect of life in the city of Bristol. The heart of modern Bristol isn't medieval or even Georgian, but Victorian. The framework of today's city was laid down in the nineteenth century, with the system of local government, road and rail layouts, and the siting of the business quarter. The Victorians set up all the institutions we take for granted - the police force, the fire brigade, the post office, telephones, sewerage, lighting, refuse collection, gas and electricity, water. They built the schools, the libraries, swimming baths, their leading citizens put up the money for the city's art gallery and other institutions. Remove the Victorian contribution, and Bristol would be a backwater. Queen Victoria herself visited the city only twice: once in 1830 as a young princess aged 11, when she visited with her mother the Duchess of Kent, and stayed in a first-floor suite at the Clifton Hotel in The Mall, and again right at the end of her reign, in 1899, when she was 80. Between those two dates, Bristol changed radically, stamped by the new Victorian ethos. What was it like to live in this age of progress and industry, of self-improvement and selective charity? Using extracts from books, letters, journals and newspapers, Life in Victorian Bristol gives the flavour of those years and describes the social and economic systems which made the city function. With the help of faded photographs - the camera made its appearance two years into Victoria's reign - we know what Victorian Bristol and its inhabitants looked like, we still live in the houses they built, we shop at the firms they founded, drink in the pubs they drank in, drive on the roads they built. As Helen Reid graphically shows, perhaps they weren't so different from us, after all.

Brian Milton, a Bedminster boy born in 1927, recalls life as a young lad in Bristol in the 1930s and during the war years that saw the destruction of much of the old city. It is a graphic story of how people lived, worked and played in a world now gone for ever. It was a world of corner shops, the clang of trams swaying through the city streets, of daily milk floats, baker's carts and brewery drays, of kids playing safely in the street, when Friday night meant soaking in a tin-bath in front of the coal fire.

Title: Memoirs of John Addington Symonds
Author: John Addington Symonds
Published: 1984
Publisher: Random House
ISBN: 0394540859
British poet, critic, and historian. Born 5th. October, 1840 in Bristol; died 1893.
John Addington Symonds may be considered to be the first British scholar of lesbian and gay issues. He realised that he was homosexual at a very early age and had vivid dreams of being in a room surrounded by naked sailors. At Harrow school his innate timidity and romanticism caused him to be disgusted by the abundant homosexual activity available to the other boys there. His confusion led him to accuse the Harrow headmaster, Dr Vaughan, of loving one of his pupils, and with the help of his father, achieved the removal of Dr Vaughan from the school. This malicious act was to haunt Symonds later in life. Even at this time Symonds was in love with a choirboy, Willie Dyer and twice exchanged kisses with him. However, his father advised that he might be accused of the same as his recent victim, Dr Vaughan. In his mid-twenties, on the advice of his father, Symonds married and went on to father four daughters. However, he and his wife had no passion and they soon lived in separate parts of their house, and Symonds continued to pursue young men as soul mates. Symonds turned to literature as a vocation and became one of the foremost men of letters of his time, famed for his reviews, essays, books of art history, and expositions of poetry. He became a cultural arbiter of the Victorian era. Unknown to most of his contemporaries he began to study homosexual issues. In 1883 he published a 10-copy edition of "A Problem in Greek Ethics", and in 1891 he published a 50-copy edition of "A Problem in Modern Ethics". He also began a collaboration with Havelock Ellis which resulted in the publication of "Sexual Inversion" after Symonds's death (in German in 1896, and in English in 1897). Symonds also wrote his memoirs but handed them to his literary executor, H. F. Brown, who willed them to a London Library with instructions that they remain secret for 50 years. They finally appeared in 1984.

ISBN:
"Somerset is a serene county, varied in mood more than most, yet always mild", wrote Pevsner, drawing attention to its freedom from the extremes of its neighbouring counties. Highlights of this volume are a full account of the Georgian marvels of Bath, and a separate section on the port of Bristol, whose sumptuous Victorian commercial buildings are among the best of their date in England. The fourteenth-century Nunney Castle and John Nash's picturesque Blaise Hamlet are perfect examples of their type, while the cathedrals of Wells and Bristol and the Decorated Gothic of St Mary Redcliffe, Bristol, inspired some of Pevsner's most eloquent writing on the character of English Gothic architecture.

Title: Old Inns of Bristol

Published: 2006

ISBN: 1874092974
The existing inns of the old port city of Bristol reveal much about its history, and many have intriguing tales to tell. Which pub has a door covered in human skin? Which watering hole near the shopping centre has a ghost? Where are the oldest licensed premises in the city, and what plots have been hatched there? In this fascinating trawl, the authors tell the stories behind Bristol's oldest surviving inns, and revisit the shades of famous, now vanished venues when inns also stabled horses, bedded down their travelling customers and stocked their ponds with turtles to feed them. The humbler working men's taverns on the street corners of Bristol's many different trade areas are also revisited, and their names and origins explained. Another fascinating contribution to the history of Bristol.

Title: Pevsner Architectural Guides: Bristol
Author: Foyle, Andrew
Published: 2004
Publisher: Yale University Press
ISBN: 0300104421
The volume is "designed as a practical guide for exploring the buildings of central Bristol and its inner suburbs". After an introduction to the city's geographic aspects and historical background there are sections devoted to: major buildings such as the Cathedral, St Mary Redcliffe, or the Clifton Suspension Bridge; the fifteen city centre churches; the city centre itself--a "dense and disparate assemblage" due in part to German bombing; the inner city, with five recommended walks; outer areas, with eight walks through Clifton, the University area and Kingsdown among others; and excursions further afield to places such as Ashton Court or Tyntes-field. The more relaxed approach to volumes such as this does not undermine the scholarship and wealth of information contained between the covers.

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. Reprinted in 2004 by Tempus Publishing with the ISBN 1859834434 or 978-1859834435

Title: Report Upon the Dockisation of the River Avon
Author: Barry, Sir John Wolfe & Baker, Sir Benjamin & Mr Hurtzig
Published: 1900
Publisher: Spottiswode and Co.
ISBN:
By the end of the 19th century the Port of Bristol was in a permanent state of decline. Its facilities were by now far too small to attract large ocean-going liners and access up the winding River Avon remained a major obstacle. Also, the docks at Avonmouth and Portishead had become inadequate, again because of the size of vessels and the consequent increase in cargoes. Thus the dockising of the river, originally suggested during the 1850s, was once again considered as a solution. In this thoughtful report, by some of the most famous engineers of the later 19th century, they suggest dockising the mouth of the river only and regarding the work as an extension of Avonmouth docks. However, reduced in scale as this might have been in comparison to closing off the entire waterway as far as Bristol, the proposed works were nevertheless extremely ambitious in scale. They involved the provision of a diversion and new outfall for the river, an extensive reclamation embankment and a masonry dam and 12 miles of railway. However, nothing came of the scheme.
