2. Bristol As It Was

Reece published 37 volumes of photographs from the collection. His son, John has published a further seven volumes, including an index of photographs.
A brief biography of Reece appears in vol. 40. As a result of this successful publishing project, Bristol enjoys an unparalleled photographic record.

A fair number of new copies of various titles of this long-running and authoritative series are available by post. They are only available from Reece Winstone Archive, not from bookshops or wholesalers.
