Explore Your Archive: Discovering the ‘White City’

A talk by local author Clive Burlton, who uncovered the story of Bristol’s White City, a new exhibition at Bristol Archives.

As part of Explore Your Archive week, hear how Clive researched this little-known aspect of the First World War in Bristol, using photographs from the Vaughan postcard collection, as well as other documents at Bristol Archives, Bristol Central Library and The National Archives.

Images from the archives have been used to create a virtual reality tour using an electronic headset. Come along to try this before or after the talk.

Bristol Museums, Galleries & Archives is a partner in Bristol 2014, an extensive programme of activity marking the centenary of the start of the First World War in the city.
