In 1850, Redland was still largely a rural area outside the city of Bristol. By 1900 it was very much the middle-class suburb that it is today. Peter Malpass shows how this development took place in an era before planning restrictions and big construction firms. Light is cast on the, not always logical, road system and the characteristic varieties of housing. This detailed reconstruction, fully illustrated with maps and photographs, makes a fascinating episode in the history of Bristol and a case study in Victorian urban development.

Includes an A3 map showing land ownership in 1841.
