Bristol lost a beautiful post office and so many downtown buildings. Images of those long gone buildings flood social media.
However, the history of Bristol is also about people, not buildings.
Inside those building were people. People who offered services, people who played sports, people who shopped, people who worked in factories and the Bristol barons they worked for.
The list goes on and on. People lived, worked and shopped in Bristol.
Ironically, Bristol is trying to bring back just that. People who live, work and shop in Bristol.
