Reproduced in full colour, this is an exciting examination of Bristol's docks, and what they meant to the people of this area throughout the 19th and into the 20th Century. Looking beyond the exquisite exterior of these well-kept photos, readers can see the historical context in which they are set, and through the author's factual captions for every picture, and carefully-selected choice of images, the reader can achieve a reliable view of this area's history. There is something for everyone here, whether they have lived in Bristol all their lives, or whether they are just visiting this fabulous city and its docks. Bristol City Docks Through Time also shows how photography has continually evolved to keep up with an ever changing society.

North Somerset has seen great changes in the last two centuries, and this evocative collection of old and new photographs shows how three of the county's communities, Portishead, Pill and Long Ashton, have altered and grown through time. All three had a close relationship with the old maritime port of Bristol, which shaped their history. As can be seen in these beautifully illustrated pages, many of the streets, shops, houses and workplaces have greatly changed. Sitting on the edge of the Severn Estuary, Portishead was an insignificant North Somerset village in 1811, with a population of just 369. It was transformed over the next 100 years into a popular seaside resort with a busy dock. Today, Portishead has reinvented itself as a cosmopolitan town, complete with a magnificent marina. Dependent on Bristol's sea trade, Pill has had to adapt to the closure of Bristol's docks, while Long Ashton has grown from a rural outpost into a prosperous village.

The Avonmouth Line - History and Working describes the railway built between the northern suburbs of Bristol and the docks constructed at the mouth of the River Avon, from its inception in 1865. It describes how a short passenger line was first constructed, running from a station in the Avon Gorge at Hotwells to the new Docks. The Midland Railway and then the Great Western Railway took advantage of the rising popularity of the Avonmouth docks, and additional routes were constructed at Kingswood Junction on the Bristol-Gloucester line, and from a junction with the Great Western at Pilning. Contents include the beginnings of the line as the 'Bristol Port Railway and Pier'; the docks lines at their height of use and during wartime; post 1950s run-downs and attempts to close the line; the line in 2018 and finally, duties and memories of the staff who worked the line. P D Rendall has had a life-long career in railway engineering and is now a published author and social historian.
