A lot of family members’ entertainment originated from the radio (or ‘cordless’) or with hearing 78rpm records on a gramophone. Nonetheless, a solitary event in 1953 offered a huge boost to the uptake of television. This was the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II on 2nd June 1953 at Westminster Abbey.

Feb 7th 1952.
Bristol Fire Brigade were today damping down the smouldering ruins of the blaze in St. Pauls Road, where the damage is estimated at ₤ 40,000.
As the blaze ravaged adjoining tannery offices as well as stockrooms, explosions rocked a broad location, and also hundreds of individuals dashed for shelter as melting particles rained down. The properties belonging to Messrs. J. R. Hawkins and Co., leather produces and Messrs. Wilkinson nand Riddell (Bristol). Ltd., textile vendors. The fire which began inn the tannery, gutted Messrs Hawkins workshops, worn out a large part of offices as well as destroyed a storehouse belonging to the fabric company. The flames fanned by a hign wind, endangered close-by houses in Orange road, as firefighters combated to control the blaze.
A young boy Royston John Hurley of Claremount Street., Stapleton had a very lucky escape when a 3- foot item of drain pipeline dropped from the scorching tannery. It struck him on the leg triggering just small injury. This was the third fire in the tannery in the previous 3 months. It was the biggest post-war fire in Bristol as well as took 48hrs to bring the fire in control.
It’s interesting, however not actually surprising, to discover that 50 years ago the climate – in an additional dismal November week – was dominating the headlines. Fog covered Bristol – or a minimum of the Eastville as well as Fishponds areas of the city – (aided, no question, by pollution from the lots of coal fires) nearly paralysing transportation.
By 11pm presence at Filton was to five lawns, with web traffic virtually stock-still on the Gloucester Road. But while the city endured, the Bristol Night Message stated that numerous country locations were clear. In spite of this, the Aust ferry – which carried passengers and also cars and trucks over to Chepstow – was cancelled forever. Thick fog was reported at Portishead. No aircraft were showing up or leaving from Whitchurch flight terminal as well as there was a complete hold-up of cruisings from both Avonmouth and the City Docks.
Trains were getting here from London up to half a hr late and city business owners were taking an unprecedented 50 minutes to obtain to work from locations such as Clifton as well as Henleaze. It was turmoil. Other news of the week worried bus chauffeurs and conductors (they were the ones that took the money as well as offered you tickets in those far off days) that were due obtain a pay rise of 11 shillings a week (simply over 50p). Maintenance workers, nevertheless, were only to get eight shillings as well as 3p a week a lot more.
The unions had been requesting between 16 as well as 33 shillings. As it was estimated that the surge would certainly cost the Bristol bus firm an extra ₤ 100,000 a year, guess exactly what? Yes, you’re right – fares went up by 2p and 3p the complying with week.
You’ll no uncertainty be pleased to hear that busmen of all grades would certainly currently be obtaining between ₤ 7 as well as ₤ 8 a week – with drivers obtaining ₤ 7 and also 18 shillings. That, by the way, had to do with the average wage in those days. Of rate of interest – if just because it’s recently been revealed that it’s on the back – was the Company’s gathering of cooking area waste to make use of in pig swill. The typical regular collection amounted to 300 heaps which, after ‘treatment’ produced regarding 260 bunches of so-called ‘Bristol pudding’, gathered by farmers and made use of for pig food.
Only five various other cities in the country had such a solution, as well as Bristol’s was taken into consideration to be the most effective. Chief credit rating for this, said the Article happily, were the city’s homemakers. Every week they loaded 130,000 specially- provided bins. Individuals were being asked politely not to put their cutlery in the bins – the pigs really did not like it.
Still on the topic of homemakers, a lot of them (if not all) were delighted to hear that acquisition tax obligation was to be taken out on home brushes, brooms as well as sponges (remember them, the stringy ones?). The concept was to assist the trade, instead compared to the household purse, especially as numerous blind and disabled persons acquired their living from it. Still, individuals need to have been savoring residential happiness at that time – one cheery road advertisement suggesting: ‘She’ll love a Hoover Vapor Iron for Xmas’. Such a terrific present at only ₤ 4 19 shillings and 6p. Want a suggestion? Do not take that advice today.
Some things of great issue for those curious about this fantastic city’s remarkable previous stood out up in journalism 50 years earlier. One was a tale concerning the Hogarth church piece, 3 oil paintings commissioned by the Vestry of St Mary Redcliffe some 250 years ago. This triptych – which had been in store for some 80 years – was being handed over to the Corporation of Bristol to be hung on public view in the City Art Gallery. So where, you are qualified to ask, is this invaluable Bristol treasure currently? As much as I know (and I may extremely well be wrong) it’s still rotting in the abandoned St Nicholas church gallery, secured away from public sight.
Bristol’s reverence for its past was likewise revealed in a story about the last service to be held at the Old King Street Baptist Church in Broadmead. This church had a much longer background compared to other Baptist church in the city – it was established at Quakers Friars in 1640 and it moved to Old King Road in 1815 – so of program it was being demolished. The reason? It remained in the way of the ‘new’ Broadmead buying area.
The members moved to Redland. Another among Bristol’s treasures, on the various other hand, was obtaining a complete inspection. Brunel’s suspension bridge was closed for the week to just about pedestrians while workmen began taking a look at and evaluating among both cross-girders. The old one, eliminated as well as eliminated to be evaluated ‘to damage’, was to be changed by one covered with zinc.
A surprising Bristol litigation that made the headings 50 years ago concerned a ‘savage assault’ supposedly made by a 35-year-old Southmead male on his better half making use of a damaged milk bottle.
The couple, the court was notified, had been wed 15 years as well as had 3 youngsters, aged 6, 12 and 14. Their life together had not mored than happy, as well as 3 months previously the guy had actually placed his spouse ‘away from the house’. She had relocated into lodgings, yet then considered prostitution. There was evidence, it was said, that the partner had received some of the cash gained in this manner. On the night of the alleged assault, the pair had actually been out drinking.
There was a quarrel on the way home as well as the man told his wife: ‘I’ll rip your face to ensure that no man will certainly check out you.’ She was sobbing when they reached the home, so their 14-year-old daughter made a mug of tea. After utilizing negative language, which the daughter aimed to quit, the man tossed his favorite over his spouse. ‘As she stood up he punched her hard in the mouth with his left hand,’ stated the prosecution. ‘She dropped back versus the wall surface.
After that he got a milk bottle, wrecked it versus the wall surface and also grabbed his spouse by the rear of the head. ‘Holding her with his left hand, he struck her repetitively in the face with the jagged glass, triggering very severe injuries. She was required to health center and had 16 stitches placed, 14 in the face.’ In evidence, the wife stated that while they were walking house her partner claimed ‘I’ll ‘chiv’ you’. Throughout the claimed assault she really felt an acute pain and every little thing went red. She told the court: ‘He was claiming ‘I’ll finish you off’ and dragged me up by my hair and also slung me around the space.’ A cop said that when he went to the home the lady’s face was terribly cut and also blood loss.
‘ All she could say was, ‘take him away, he seethes’.’ In his support, the husband stated that he had actually informed his wife that if she did not change her means he would certainly change them for her for the youngsters.
He had actually made allegations versus his wife, as well as his eldest child slapped his face. ‘She began to scream as well as scream as well as I shed my mood as well as struck her,’ he said. ‘She fell face down amongst the glass from the damaged milk container which was just how her face got cut. ‘I did not actually intend to create the injuries – I tossed the milk container at her and also it shattered versus the wall. While I was punching her, her face was turning around as well as have to have been going right into the broken glass.’ The guy was dedicated for test – on a guaranty of ₤ 100 – at Bristol Assize (the old Crown Court). The jury found him guilty.

I very advise that you view the full resolution image to see the elegant aeolian weathering externally, and also the fine grains of basaltic sands that are accountable for much of that erosion by being carried the seasonal winds within Gale crater. The base photos were obtained on mission sol 1681 and the merged frameworks were refined one sol (Mars day) later by the rover throughout mission sol 1682 (April 30, 2017).
