For over 30 years the Bristol Historical Association has worked to preserve the rich history of the Twin-Cities. During this time, the Association has acquired a fine collection of photographic images that spans the years since the American Civil War. For the Association's next meeting, a wonderful PowerPoint presentation will be shared which includes some of the highlights of that collection. This presentation, entitlted "Snapshots of Bristol History" will be shown and narrated by Roy & Carolyn Williams on Monday, March 12, 6:30pm, in the J. Henry Kegley Meeting Room of the Bristol Public Library.
The Williams have spent years copying and digitizing the photographic collection as well as co-producing a book of Bristol images, "Honoring Our Heritage: Faces and Places from the Past". "Snapshots of Bristol History" is a PowerPoint presentation of dozens of both common and rare glimpses of buildings, architecture, events and memorable "Kodak" moments in the city. Many are original images from the Association's Kelly & Green Collection. Kelly & Green was the region's premier Kodak photofinisher and was a Bristol mainstay for decades. These images are breathtaking and tell a story that can only be told visually.
The public is cordially invited to attend this meeting and special program of the Bristol Historical Association. The meeting is free and open to the general public.
Note: This presentation is also going on the road! If your club or organization would like to book "Snapshots of Bristol History", please contact Roxann Coulthard at 276-466-5357.
