Series: Through Time

Redland, Cotham & Kingsdown Through Time is a vibrant, historical exploration through a wonderful selection of old and new photographs of the neighbouring suburbs just north of Bristol's city centre. Only 200 years ago, Redland and Cotham were open fields while the Georgian terraces of Kingsdown were beginning to creep up the hill from the medieval heart of old Bristol. In his second title in this series, Bristol-born author and historian Will Musgrave examines the remarkably rapid growth of the area and shows how life has changed for the local residents. The streets, full of small shops, cars, trams and people dressed from a bygone era, and the architectural splendour of the houses, churches and schools are evocatively brought to life.
