Footnotes

  • EXHIBITED:
    Bristol Museums and Art Gallery, 27 March – 26 October 1997 'From Bristol to the Sea' - Artists, the Avon Gorge and Bristol Harbour 1750-1950.

    On the right a ship is being built in Lime Kiln Dock. The terrace of houses above the Hotwell Road obscures Thomas Goldney's garden buildings which are a prominent feature in Pococks etchings. Today the S.S. Great Britain would be just beyond the shed above the 40 oarsmen.

    Francis Geenacre writes - 'it is always especially exciting to see Pococks that demonstrate so perfectly both his own experience as a mariner and ship's captain and the problems of getting a vessel into Bristol'.


    We are grateful to Francis Geenacre for his assistance in cataloguing this lot.
