The Ostrich Lower Guinea Street Bristol
You can’t miss the Ostrich BS1. Far from hiding its head in the sand, this huge white building can be seen beckoning you from the very heart of the harbour. Outside seating means the place gets packed in the summer with tourists and locals of all ages and inclinations taking their pints out to the waterside. When the weather is less pleasant, dive inside and check out the caves (one of which contains a replica skeleton) and make time for a bite to eat – they serve up a great seafood platter and a cracking Sunday roast.
There were three famous Ostrich Inns in Bristol in the eighteenth century. The one in Old Market Street has long since disappeared and the famous hostelry on Durdham Down is no longer a sporting inn but a private house.
The Ostrich in Lower Guinea Street is still with us, a fine waterside inn, standing very much as it was originally. The recent overhaul which it has been given by Courages Breweries has improved its appearance without substantially altering its finest features. The door-case with shallow hood pediment and pillasters remains, as does the oblong fanlight.
We cannot be certain of the actual date of the Inn’s erection but it was in existence and noted in the 1775 Directory when Jonathan Main was the victualler. In 1793 the inn was listed as the Ostrich, ‘Trimm Mills’ and this is a reference to its original setting when Treen Mills was an open pool some way out of the city.
Each autumn, the Mayor and Corporation led by trumpeters would proceed splendidly to the Treen pool to take part in the annual sport of duck-hunting. The pool is now covered by the Bathurst Basin and the ducks, alas, are in short supply.
One is always conscious of the water here and it is a most attractive setting for a city inn. The quay-front has been opened up and seats and tables have been put out on the spacious frontage of this inland waterway. There is always some activity to watch; amateur sailors learn their skills; cranes unload sand and gravel; Bathurst Lock and the bascule bridge provide an all year round entertainment.
You can look across the Floating Harbour to the Grove and see another famous waterfront inn, the Hole in the WalL When you have exhausted the marine scene look across at the splendid example of Bristol ‘Byzantine’ architecture, the facade of Warmer’s warehouses built in 1815 probably by Gingell and Lysaght, the designers of the General Hospital round the corner.
The facade of yellow brick decorated in the Moorish manner has superb ornamentation and decorative ogee arches, extravagant perhaps in a warehouse but a delight to the eye. A few years ago the building was derelict but it has now been restored and behind the ornate brickwork is a squash courts complex and apartments.
The General Hospital was built in 1853 to take care of the casualties from the docks and the new factories at the time when Guinea Street was considered to be a healthy spot surrounded by water and overlooking country fields. The hospital won an architectural competition for its designers who had the bright idea of providing warehouse space in the basement which could be let to merchants using Bathurst Basin and thus providing an income for the hospital.
The external appearance of the Ostrich has changed little over the years apart from some alterations to the sash windows. Earlier pictures of the inn show that three of the windows had at some stage been blocked up to evade the window tax. This tax, originally levied in 1697 to raise revenue, was increased sixfold between 1747 and 1808 and many owners of large houses were forced to block up windows with brickwork; often the openings were painted to simulate a sashed casement.
In the recent renovation of the inn one of the windows was found to be an imitation blocked casement and a fireplace had been fitted into it. All the windows have now be opened and the frontage is much improved.
Most of the original internal fittings have gone, but it would be foolish to regret the loss of a sawdust floor when one can still smell the salt of the sea at this inn. The Bristol Cruising Club has made its headquarters here, Sea Scouts haul their training ships up its slipway, and sailors still feel that the Ostrich is their natural port of call as they have done for two hundred years.
The whole area swarmed with sea-captains in the eighteenth century who made their homes in nearby Guinea Street. The best of these is sadly the only remaining house in the street, now divided into three dwellings, numbers 10, 11 and 12. It was here that Captain Edmund Saunders, a merchant and one-time churchwarden of St Mary Redciffe, spent the wealth he had acquired as a privateer on a house with the most interesting and varied series of key-blocks in Bristol.
One of its walls has been partly demolished to reveal the interior of one of the many caves under Redcliffe. On the wall opposite is a copy of a trade card for the pub, dated 1775, which features a young black man, probably a
Coney Island, Brooklyn
Descended from the ice slides enjoyed in eighteenth-century Russia, through the many changes incorporated by French and American inventors, the Cyclone has been one of our country's premier roller coasters since its construction in 1927. Designed by engineer Vernon Keenan and built by noted amusement ride inventor Harry C. Baker for Jack and Irving Rosenthal, the Cyclone belongs to an increasingly rare group of wood-tr3ck coasters; modern building codes make it irreplaceable. The design cf its twister-type circuit and the enormous weight of the cars allow the trains to travel on their own momentum after being carried up to the first plunge by mechanical means. Now part of Astroland amusement park, the Cyclone is not only a well-recognized feature of Coney Island, where the first "modern" coaster was built in 1884, but, sadly, is the only roller coasrer still operating there.
The president of the American Coaster Enthusiasts sums up the ride's continued popularity:
The world-famous Cyclone has earned a place in history through its reputation as the world's best roller coaster, through the enjoyment and pleasure it has afforded countless generations of families and friends, through its starring role in many films, literature, art, photography, the news. The Cyclone is a classic
beauty and we need to have it recognized as an
irreplaceable part of history and Americana.1
The History of Conev Island
Coney Island has played a part in the history of New York since the first days of European exploration, when Henry Hudson docked his ship, the Half Moon, off its coast in 1609. Lady Deborah Moody and forty followers settled Gravesend, the area north of Coney Island, in 1643; she bought the island itself from the Canarsie Indians in 1654. Not until 1824 did the Gravesend and Coney Island Road and Bridge Company build a shell road from the thriving center of Gravesend to what is now West 8th Street on the island. Along with the commencement of steamer ship service from New York in 1847, this improved access allowed about a half dozen small hotels to spring up by the 1860s. During this period many famous Americans rusticated there: Washington Irving, Herman Melville, Henry Clay, Daniel Webster, and Walt Whitman.
But the nature of vacationing at Coney Island changed quickly during the 1870s, when several railroad companies began service from Brooklyn; the completion of F.L. Olmsted's Ocean Parkway, a designated New York City Scenic Landmark, also provided a comfortable route for carriages. Grand hotels and restaurants accommodated the mostly well-to-do visitors, who came to enjoy not only the ocean and cool sea breezes but also the amusements which were transforming Coney into the most famous family park among its American counterparts. A festive atmosphere was ensured by the transferral to Coney Island of structures from the dismantled Centennial Exposition which had been held in Philadelphia in 1876.
Coney Island developed into "America's first and orobably still most symbolic commitment to mechanized leisure. The island increasingly became the site for technologically advanced structures such as the balloon hangar, elephant-shaped hotel and observatory (built in 1882, it became an unofficial symbol of American amusement parks), and the Iron Pier (1878) which housed many amusements. Mechanically-driven rides were pioneered at Coney; most of these rides succeeded because they combined socially acceptable thrills with undertones of sexual intimacy."* Indeed, Coney Island, which earned the sobriquet "Sodom by the Sea," was "the only place in the United States that Sigmund Freud said interested him."^ As early as 1883, Coney's name was identified with entertainment, proven by the renaming of a midwestern park as "Ohio Grove, The Coney Island of the West."^
Between 1880 and 1910 its three large and successful racetracks gave Coney Island the reputation of horseracing capital of the country. In addition to gamblers, such features attracted confidence men, roughnecks, and prostitutes. Coney's
many activities could be viewed from above in the three-hundred-foot Iron Tower (originally the Sawyer Tower at the 1876 Exposition). This most notorious phase of Coney's history ended around the turn of the century after many hotels burned down in fires during the 1890s and racetrack betting was outlawed by the state in 1910.
A movement led by George C. Tilyou to transform Coney's corrupt image introduced the idea of the enclosed amusement park to American recreation. By 1894 there were dozens of separately owned rides; but the following year Capt. Paul Boyton opened Sea Lion Park, a group of rides and attractions one enjoyed after paying an admission fee at the gate. During the next decade, Coney's three most famous enclosed parks opened: Steeplechase Park (Tilyou's own endeavor), Luna Park, and Dreamland, forming "the largest and most glittering a
