How much do you know about the history of Bristol? Why does it look the way it does? What secrets do its streets hide? What stories would its buildings tell if they had a voice?
Volume Two of Manson’s Bristol Miscellany includes:
Getting around: roads, ferries, trams, trains, planes and bridges.
Webs of communication: newspapers and telecommunications.
Earth, wind and flood: weather extremes, floods and earthquakes.
Realists and romantics: a new poetic movement, literary and cultural connections.
A roof over your head: almshouses, workhouses, orphanages and social housing.
Buildings of Bristol: bricks and stones, grand houses, town squares, windmills and post war reconstruction.
And so much more…
