88 pages. Profusely illustrated in black and white. "As a Firm which has been engaged in manufacturing in Bristol for over 200 years, we felt that we should like to make some contribution towards the re-birth of our city. A vivid, yet simple account of the main features of the story of Bristol - particularly at this time when we have lost so many records of the past - seemed appropriate. In order to give a clear idea of Bristol's historical development, we have attempted to present a cross-section of the life of the city at selected periods - 1200, 1500, 1750 and 1939... We have shown the destruction caused by the 'blitz', and said something about the plans and opportunities for the future." - From the Foreward by J.S. Fry and Sons Ltd.
