Bristol: Montaup to ...
Bristol: Montaup to Poppasquash takes readers on a unique journey through the community's past, beginning with the voyages of early Norse explorers and detailing major events that shaped the town's history, including the King Philip's War, the Revolutionary War, and a variety of other military conflicts that took local men and women away from their homes. Not only evoking memories of yesteryear, this compelling illustrated history explores the evolving personality of Bristol over the passing decades, from its days as a small fishing village and a haven for privateers to its present status as a premier boat-building center.

Simpson has gathered a nice variety of antique and contemporary history subjects of Bristol, RI into several compact and easily read articles illustrated with photos from many sources. The author had the foresight to include subjects that will be of interest to old time residents as well as new residents of the town. As a graphic designor, I appreciate the sensitave way Simpson has layed out the illustrations in his Arcadia titles.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
