BooksHistory PressBOOK: Bedminster
- Additional information
The rich and complex history of Bristol’s famous southern suburb comes to life in this collection of old photographs, postcards and drawings. The development of the local coalfield caused a population explosion: from 3,000 in 1801 to 78,000 in 1884. Bedminster became a power-house of industry manned by a huge workforce packed into terraced housing. The late, great Anton Bantock has superbly chronicled Bedminster’s story, its colourful characters and its achievements. (128 pages / Paperback)
