Local history enthusiasts are invited to find out about some major Bristol landmarks with local researcher and film maker, Gordon Young. He will present three of his films at Staple Hill library on Wednesday 10 March.
“Through Ticket to New York”is the story of Bristol’s funding of the Great Western Railway and the part it played in creating the first integrated transatlantic passenger route, while “View of the Bridge”features the construction of the iconic Clifton Suspension Bridge. The third film is about the building of Fairfax House, which has since been demolished.
Gordon researched the building of these landmarks which has thrown new light on these major projects. As well as showing the films, Gordon will talk about the making of them and answer any questions from the audience.
Tickets are £2.50, including refreshments, and are available from any South Gloucestershire library.
The event kicks off at 7.30pm at Staple Hill library, Broad Street, Staple Hill.
