PAWISTIK - Horseshoe Falls
More impressions of Niagra by Frances Kemble in 1833 . . . a time of near-pristine forested grandeur (in some places):
We reached Queenstown, on the Niagara river, below the falls, at about twelve o'clock, and had three more miles to drive to reach them. The day was serenely bright and warm, without a cloud in the sky, or a shade in the earth, or a breath in the air. We were in an open carriage, and I felt almost nervously oppressed with the expectation of what we were presently to see. We stopped the carriage occasionally to listen for the giant's roaring, but the sound did not reach us until, within three miles over the thick woods which skirted the river, we saw a vapoury silver cloud rising into the blue sky. It was the spray, the breath of the toiling waters ascending to heaven. When we reached what is called the Niagara House, a large tavern by the roadside, I sprang out of the carriage and ran through the house, down flights of steps cut in the rock, and along a path skirted with low thickets, through the boughs of which I saw the rapids running a race with me, as it seemed, and hardly faster than I did. Then there was a broad, flashing sea of furious foam, a deafening rush and roar, through which I heard Mr. Trelawney, who was following me, shout, "Go on, go on; don't stop!" I reached an open floor of broad, flat rock, over which the water was pouring. Trelawney seized me by the arm, and all but carried me to the very brink; my feet were in the water and on the edge of the precipice, and then I looked down. I could not speak, and I could hardly breathe ; I felt as if I had an iron band across my breast. I watched the green, glassy, swollen heaps go plunging down, down, down; each mountainous mass of water, as it reached the dreadful brink, recoiling, as in horror, from the abyss; and after rearing backwards in helpless terror, as it were, hurling itself down to be shattered in the inevitable doom over which eternal clouds of foam and spray spread an impenetrable curtain. The mysterious chasm, with its uproar of voices, seemed like the watery mouth of hell. I looked and listened till the wild excitement of the scene took such possession of me that, but for the strong arm that held me back, I really think I should have let myself slide down into the gulf. It was long before I could utter, and as I began to draw my breath I could only gasp out, " 0 God! 0 God !" No words can describe either the scene itself, or its effect upon me.
We stayed three days at Niagara, the greater part of which I spent by the water, under the water, on the water, and more than half in the water. Wherever foot could stand I stood, and wherever foot could go I went. I crept, clung, hung, and waded; I lay upon the rocks, upon the very edge of the boiling cauldron, and I stood alone under the huge arch over which the water pours with the whole mass of it, thundering over my rocky ceiling, and falling down before me like an immeasurable curtain, the noonday sun looking like a pale spot, a white wafer, through the dense thickness. Drenched through, and almost blown from my slippery footing by the whirling gusts that rush under the fall, with my feet naked for better safety, grasping the shale broken from the precipice against which I pressed myself, my delight was so intense that I really could hardly bear to come away.
The rock over which the rapids run is already scooped and hollowed out to a great extent by the action of the water; the edge of the precipice, too, is constantly crumbling and breaking off under the spurn of its downward leap. At the very brink the rock is not much more than two feet thick, and when I stood under it and thought of the enormous mass of water rushing over and pouring from it, it did not seem at all improbable that at any moment the roof might give way, the rock break off fifteen or twenty feet, and the whole huge cataract, retreating back, leave a still wider basin for its floods to pour themselves into. You must come and see it before you die, dear H___.
After our short stay at Niagara, we came down Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence to Montreal and. Quebec. Before I leave off speaking of that wonderful cataract, I must tell you that the impression of awe and terror it produced at first upon me completely wore away, and as I became familiar with it, its dazzling brightness, its soothing voice, its gliding motion, its soft, thick, furry beds of foam, its veils and draperies of floating light, and gleaming, wavering diadems of vivid colours, made it to me the perfection of loveliness and the mere magnificence of beauty. It was certainly not the " familiarity" that " breeds contempt," but more akin to the " perfect love " which " casteth out fear; " and I began at last to understand Mr. Trelawney's saying that the only impression it produced on him was that of perfect repose; but perhaps it takes Niagara to mesmerize him.
Bristol Chronicles 1910
1910 - The Bristol Distress Committee had commenced work on the Portishead Marine Lake using unemployed labour. They decided to continue with the work despite a protest from the Ratepayers’ Association who objected on the grounds that the work was outside the city boundary, that the men did less work because the committee paid them for travelling time and that local residents (who contributed towards the cost) did not want it.
Burglary at 15, York Place - beaten with a hot water
In January Charles Nicholls appeared before the magistrates charged with burglary at 15, York Place, a lodging house. They heard that the proprietress, Sarah Ann Williams, and her domestic, Florence Mary Fox, had discovered him in the house and beaten him with a hot water can to such an extent that he said ‘Stop it - I’ve had enough’ and he left the house with his boots under his arm but leaving his bowler hat behind him. The dented can was produced in court. The magistrates committed Nicholls for trial at the next assize.
A general election was held in the middle of January but there was no change of representation in the Bristol seats. The elected members were:
Bristol North Augustine Birrell Liberal
Bristol South Sir W.H. Davies Liberal
Bristol East C.E. Hobbouse Liberal
Bristol West G.A. Gibbs Conservative.
Heavy Handed Policing in Kingswood
Members of the Kingswood Urban District Council protested to the Chief Constable of Gloucestershire, Admiral Henry Christian, at the heavy handed policing during a meeting addressed by Walter Long, an ex-member of the government. They felt that the presence of 100 policemen was unnecessary and a stigma on the people of Kingswood.
Sefton Park School opens
In the same month the new Sefton Park School was opened without ceremony. The school had provision for ten classrooms and a central hall with accommodation for 500 senior (aged 10 to 14) and 500 junior (aged 5 to 9) boys and girls. The builder was U. Humphreys & Son and the successful competitive design was submitted by W.V. & A.R. Gough. The new Labour Exchange operated by the Board of Trade situated in Victoria Street opened for business at the beginning of February. There was a large crowd of men waiting to register.
On 1 February there was a fire in the engine house at Easton Colliery caused by the fusing of an electric wire. Thanks to the prompt action of the manager, James Steele, most of the men Were able to escape. However, three men, Joseph Gaynor of Bedminster, Benjamin Jacobs of Bedminster Down and Robert Bush of Soundwell, were on the far side of the engine house and lost their lives.
In February Sir George White founded the Bristol Aeroplane Co. Ltd., the Bristol Aviation Co., the British & Colonial Aeroplane Co. and the British & Colonial Aviation Co..
St. Mary Redcliffe
The three canvases painted by William Hogarth as an altar piece for St. Mary Redcliffe were sold in 1858 to Alderman Thomas Proctor on behalf of the Bristol Fine Art Academy (later the Royal West of England Academy) on condition that, in the event of their sale, the Vestry would receive one half of the proceeds. In February 1910 a sale was proposed to raise funds for the new Academy building but public opinion prevented the sale and the paintings were rolled up and stored.
Dean Lane Colliery
Lady Smyth, the owner of the Dean Lane Colliery, which had recently closed down, arranged for the site to be cleared by unemployed men and in March she offered a five acre site to the city as recreation grounds.
Inciting a Mutiny
In April there was further trouble at the Brentry Inebriates’ Home when William Yonds appeared before the Lawford’ s Gate magistrates charged inciting a mutiny. He was sentenced to one month’s hard labour. The death of King Edward VII at the beginning of May prompted services at most churches and chapels. The Stock Exchange, theatres and the skating rink closed and some athletic meetings postponed.
During the first week of May two new railway lines opened. The line from Stoke Gifford to Avonmouth enabled trains to run directly from the GWR and MR joint line to Avonmouth dock. This gave the opportunity to run boat trains and it also carried goods traffic so as to relieve the pressure on the Clifton to Pilning route. The other line ran from Hallatrow to Limpley Stoke and was mainly used for goods traffic.
memorial service for King Edward VII
On 13 May in all schools under the responsibility of the Education Committee a memorial service for King Edward VII was held and at the same time the proclamation of King George V’s accession was read. The proclamation was read publicly in the city on Saturday 14 May from a car of quaint design known as the ‘proclamation car’ drawn by four horses although it had originally been designed to be carr
