Product description

The Floating Harbour: A Landscape History of Bristol City Docks
John Lord & Jem Southam
The Redcliffe Press, Bristol, 1983
Soft-bound; 250 x 205 mm; pictorial covers; 128 pages. No dust jacket. Illustrations in monochrome. Printed on good quality paper.
The book is in very good condition. The binding is sound. Very slight grubbiness top of the front cover. Shadow of a small square label on the back cover.
“This is the first published study of Bristol’s historic City Docks. John Lord’s text outlines the story of the famous port from its medieval beginnings, and describes in detail the development of the landscape of the docks since the construction, early in the last century, of the deep-water Floating Harbour. The port’s architecture and scenery are subjected to lively comment; the author considers not only the docks themselves...but also the impact on the harbour scene of roads and railways, industry, commerce and suburban growth. Jem Southam’s superb photographs provide a unique and definitive contemporary portrait of the harbour, and capture the rich and varied texture of its surviving fabric. The book also includes a number of rare views of the port in the 1920s and 1930s, several maps and a gazetteer.”
