In this section you can read about the growth
of Bristol, some of its different neighbourhoods, and some of its landmark
buildings, past and present. You can also find information
on self-guided and accompanied walks you can take around the
Aerial view of Bristol, 1887, by J Lavars
(Bristol's Museums, Galleries and Archives). It is assumed that
this amazingly accurate bird's eye view of the city was painted
from the basket of a hot-air balloon.
