Quirky stone carvings on buildings in 29 Queen Square and 10-12 Guinea Street, Bristol.

29 Queen Square is one of the few surviving original houses in Queen Square, which was laid out in 1699. Frontage styles varied and No 29 was fairly fancy, suited to its wealthy first owner, the alderman Nathanial Day, later Bristol’s mayor. The entrance gates are carved vertically with an animal and decorative frieze and the windows are liberally decorated with grotesque keys.

10-12 Guinea Street was owned by a merchant and sea captain, Captain Edmund Saunders. He was responsible for 20 slaving voyages and was also a warden at St Mary Redcliffe Church between 1732 and 1739. A guinea is a gold coin, named after the West African coast, known as the Guinea coast, from which so much gold came from. This London-based trading company had control over the English trade in gold, ivory and slaves on the coast of West Africa until 1698.

A3 poster printed on a smooth, heavyweight, 100% cotton matt archival art paper with a faint raised texture. Size A3, 30cm width x 42cm height which fits a standard A3 frame or an A2 frame with an A3 mount. Sold unframed and posted flat.
