Bristol landmarks look both ancient and familiar when seen through the patina of time in this American cinemagazine.

Cinemagazine 1920 2 mins Silent


As the port from which John Cabot sailed to Newfoundland in 1497, Bristol has a special meaning to American audiences. This episode of the 'Urban Movie Chat' series offers a glimpse of the city in 1920, yet like many travelogues it focusses on landmarks that outwardly have little changed. Look closer and the margins of each scene are garnished with past Bristolians from all walks of life.
