Lost Images Of Bristol
Your journey into Bristol’s proud and distinguished history, illustrated by previously unseen colour paintings and other rare archive material, begins at the River Frome in Stapleton and quickly heads into the very
heart of the city.

But this film is so much more than a collection of historic images, as it iincludes a host of interesting tales which reveal the city’s rich heritage. Every scene has been carefully researched and a past-and-present
comparison is provided by modern location film. The enchanting paintings featured on this film are the legacy of Charles Stewart, an artist and engraver who was born in Bristol in 1837. Tragically, he fell into poverty and ended his life at the infamous
Eastville Workhouse in 1919.

Places covered include Stoke Park, Snuff Mills, Stapleton Church, Mina Road, The Old Fox Inn, St Paul’s Church, Newgate, the Bridewell, Lewin’s Mead, Christmas Steps, the Floating Harbour, St Stephen’s Church, Prince Street, King Street, Baldwin Street, Welsh Back, Bristol Bridge, Corn Street, High Street, Christchurch, the Dutch House, Mary-le-Port Street and the High Cross.

Along the way we learn of connections with a variety of prominent historical figures from Elizabeth I and Oliver Cromwell to Edward Colston and the notorious ‘traitor’ Nathaniel Wade. You will also see how many of the city’s most prominent streets and places acquired their names.

Anyone who has an interest in Bristol, today or through the ages, will
take huge pleasure from this unique discovery of the city’s history.
