Bristol Byzantine

It’s been a lovely, sunny day andI have a new camera (a Sony NEX-5, since you ask) so what better way to use both than to go out and take some photos.

The Bristol Byzantine style was popular from about 1850 to 1880 and saw Byzantine and Moorish influences applied to mostly industrial buildings. Some good examples remain – such as the Colston Hall, Granary and Brown’s Restaurant – but a lot have been demolished over the years.

For more examples of the Bristol Byzantine style, see my set on Flickr.
