Peter lives locally and is Emeritus Professor of Housing and Urban Studies at UWE. This publication is the product of seven years of research looking at Bristol’s development during the Victorian period.
How was our city transformed by a growing population, industrial change, technological innovation and urban expansion? How did the population respond to the opportunities and challenges afforded by economic growth and world trade? And who had the power to decide what solutions should be adopted?
You will also hear about some more recent research on the development of our local area.
