10 pictures of shops Bristol has lost - including Woolworths

Some well-known, some not

The cost-of-living crisis and the rising cost of energy have led to a string of shop closures across Bristol so far this year - but shops shutting down is nothing new, as this collection of old photographs shows.

Most are from the Hartley collection of photographs, which were taken by commercial photographers Veale & Co in the 1930s and 40s before being recovered by Ian Hartley who sold them to Bristol Museum in 2003.

The images show all kinds of shops, from car dealerships to florists to bike shops, and present a picture of our ever-changing High Streets. Know anything more about any of these pictures, or have we got something wrong? Email [email protected]
