Bristol was at a peak of prosperity in the first half of the 18th century when its mercantile, maritime and industrial interests all thrived. Boasting the second largest population in England by 1750, the modern city was shaped by the building of its elegant Georgian terraces and the achievements of Isambard Kingdom Brunel in the 19th century. This illustrated history charts Bristol's development from the first Anglo-Saxon settlement to the recent regeneration of the historic harbourside area.
