Photographer's Note

This is a view from Bristol's harbour, in the old days was floorishing by exporting wool and leather, importing wine, tobacco and cocoa beans. These imported goods became the basis for Bristol's manufacturing industries. By the 17th century, the port was heavily involved in the slave trade and this resulted in Bristol becoming the second most important port in England after London.
In the early 19th century the docks in Bristol were rebuilt by William Jessop. Further improvements were made by Isambard Brunel in 1830. The port was given a boast when Brunel decided to build his steamships, Great Western (1837) and Great Britain (1843) in Bristol.

I took several shots and thankfully one in sepia, which I liked most. I tried to frame it better but I wasn't quite sure what to include and what to exclude, so at the end I left it in the initial frame. Any ideas for improvement are welcome!
