This looks to me like a replica of Bristol Castle which formed part of the White City Exhibition which opened on 28 May 1914. The exhibition closed on 15 August 1914 and the site was used by the military during WW1 as the White City Barracks.

Clifton Bridge Station was opened on the Portishead branch on April 18th 1867 and was closed to passengers on September 7th 1964 (Goods traffic ceased a year or so later). The station was re-named Rownham in March 1891, but reverted back to its original name in 1910. For further details on this station, readers are recommended to consult the excellent text by Mike Oakley, Bristol Railway Stations and Halts 1840-2005, Redcliffe Press, 2006.

Rownham Ferry was moved downstream from its original position due to the extensive alterations to Bristol's harbour during the 19th century. It was purchased by the Corporation in 1866 and provided a crossing by a bridge over boats at low tide and a cable-guided ferry at high water. It was much used by trippers and for access to Clifton Bridge Station until it was closed in the 1930s.

A great view of this famous old city from the south-east, featuring many of the historical landmarks which are still very much in evidence at the present day.

A great view of the western end of the harbour, with the three famous blocks of the A (1905), B (1908) and C (1914)Bond Tobacco Warehouses, which are now Grade II Listed Buildings. The tidal River Avon flows in a northerly direction beneath Brunel's 1864 Clifton Suspension Bridge in the background and the Ashton Swing Bridge crosses the New Cut (1803), beyond which is the Cumberland Basin.

Great to see the "double-decker" road/rail swing bridge not too many years after it was opened.
