Photographs taken across Bristol have entered the Historic England Archive following a nationwide response to a public call-out.
The photos include swings sitting unused in Victoria Park, the empty Clyde pub in Redland, and a mother and daughter talking to each other on the telephone through a window.
Historic England’s Picturing Lockdown Collection is now freely accessible online, with 100 images chosen out of nearly 3,000 submissions taken between April 29 and May 5.
Ten contemporary artists, including Malaika Kedgode from Bristol, also have their work included in the new collection.
The call-out was the first time the public have been asked to capture photographs for the archive since the Second World War.
Rebecca Barrett, regional director at Historic England South West, said: “The fascinating response to our Picturing Lockdown call-out sheds light on our collective and individual experiences of lockdown and provide a snapshot into this unusual time that will be accessible for future generations to see and learn from.”
