Memories of the Past “Old Bristol” (Avon Gorge Before The Bridge early 1800’s
Roger has painted this view of life as he imagined it to be way back then. The scene depicts an old square rig ship just preparing to set sail with some of the crew (who may well have been pirates!) rowing out to board her: Towards the foreground some people are being ferried back from the ship to the quay side where the last of the cargo is waiting to be moved. To the left of the picture is an early Bristol Cutter, that may have been used to guide these great ships into the treacherous gorge.
