Bristol has been an important English seaport for more than a thousand years. The city is actually several miles from the sea and stands on the estuary of the River Avon. Bristol's habour has one of the most variable tidal flows anywhere in the world and the water level can vary by more than 30 feet between tides. Ships that were moored there were beached at each low tide. Consequently they had to be of sturdy construction and the goods in their holds needed to be securely stowed. The problem was resolved in 1803 with the construction of the Floating Harbour. There's no absolute proof that the term 'Bristol fashion' originates with that geography but the circumstantial evidence seems very strongly in favour of it.

The Boat is Isambard Kingdom Brunel's SS Great Britain.

Sorry I've not been around much recently, have been spending my time between Kent, Swindon & Bristol. I had to take Dad straight to hospital on the day we arrived back from Spain with severe food poisoning, whilst in there they found a heart problem - Dad had a triple heart bypass on Friday, a bit of a shock to us all and to think I marched him around the Alhambra in 38degs heat a few weeks ago!

So this one's for Dad - hope all's Ship-shape & Bristol Fashion soon Dad x

Your Dad will last like the ship in your image my friend. The bypass will be a new lease of life for him. He;'ll be marching you around very soon. As to the image, the wooen crates look wonderful but its very hdr, maybe a wee drop in contrast would help for me at least.

Very tasty textures...
Hope all is going well for your Dad. Years ago a French friend of ours had to have a quadruple bypass just days after we had marched him along the Roman Wall...
