Description

The Streets Where We Live

Streets are so much an everyday feature of ordinary life, that we tend to take them for granted. Streets go back a long way. They differ in their origins, in how they have changed over the years, in how we and our predecessors have used them, what part they have played in people’s lives, how they have looked (to artists as well as users) and how the look of them has changed. Streets have had their ups and downs, not just physically but also in how people have regarded them socially. Our speakers, from different parts of our area, will look at various aspects of streets at different dates and over different periods of time, and will outline their changes, visually, environmentally and socially. Presenters include Pat Hase on Weston-super-mare High Street; John Chandler on Chipping Sodbury; Mike Manson on Old Market, Bristol; Peter Malpass on Corn Street; Jenny Gaschke on the Braikenridge street views; and Steve Poole on street crime.

This will be the third ALHA Local History Day held at the Frenchay campus of the University of the West of England. Talks and displays will be in the B block lecture theatre; refreshments in the café in S block (the New Redland building). Ample free parking.
