Association Presents Archive Collection, "Snapshots of Bristol History"

March 05, 2012

For over 30 years the Bristol Historical Association has reminded its citizens of the immense history in the Twin-Cities. For those years the association has gathered a fine collection of photographic history that spans the years following the American Civil War. For an upcoming meeting of the association they will present a wonderful power-point presentation of the highlights of that collection. “Snapshots of Bristol History” will be presented by Roy & Carolyn Williams Monday, March 12, 6:30pm at the Bristol Public Library.

The Williams have spent a number of those years copying and digitizing the photographic collection as well as co-producing a recent association book of Bristol images, The Passing Years. “Snapshots of Bristol History” is a power-point presentation of dozens of common and rare glimpses of buildings, architecture, events and memorable “Kodak” moments in the city. Literally, 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 the story that can only be told visually.

The public is cordially invited to attend this meeting of the Bristol Historical Association. The March 12th meeting is free to the public.

This same presentation is also going on the road. If your club or gathering would like this power point presentation to be shown to your organization, please contact Roxann Coulthard, 276-466-5357.

The association is currently in its 33rd year of preserving the heritage of the region. For further details on this presentation or other upcoming events contact program chairman Tim Buchanan, 276-669-3885.
