Look back in embarrassment
A view along Stapleton Road, Easton, Bristol, looking towards the city and thought to have been taken on Thursday 24th February 1972. Stapleton Road was then a much busier and more important thoroughfare. In 1975 most of its traffic was drawn off by the M32 motorway. At about the same time, to add insult to injury, city-bound traffic was re-routed via the newly-constructed Easton Way and Lawrence Hill roundabout. The parked car just in front of the camera is, I think, a Hillman Minx Estate. Note that there is a hinged door, rather than a "tailgate" at the rear. Next, beyond the corner of Beaufort Street, is an MG of some sort. On the opposite side of the road the first three vehicles are a Ford Transit van, an Austin A30 and a Singer Gazelle. Zigzag markings, prohibiting parking on either side of a pedestrian crossing, have yet to be introduced. The properties on the Webb Street corner are a Mountstevens bakery and a furniture shop. Beyond these are a secondhand shop and a newsagent. Next are Casey's, which sold camping equipment, and Kay's record shop. These shops (which extended for another mile or so behind the camera, all the way to Eastville Junction) served a large area of inner-city east Bristol. The loss of traffic, the demolition of all the housing in Easton, the bisection of the road by Easton Way and the destruction of all the buildings (except the Waggon & Horses pub) on the left-hand side of this length of the road, led to a rapid decline. Such shops as survive here mostly cater to newly-arrived immigrant groups. As a lively mixed shopping centre serving a traditional working-class clientele, Stapleton Road's days were numbered. This particular rank of shops loom large in the Bentos legend for two reasons, both embarrassing to recollect. Several of these businesses were customers of my first employers, a linen-hire firm, for whom I worked as a "vanboy". There was a girl in the firm's laundry whom I fancied like mad, but was much too timid to speak to, not least because her advanced age ...she was 18... placed her hopelessly beyond the ambitions of a mere school-leaver. My only contact with her took the form of burning glances and a certain amount of obnoxious showing-off when she was in my vicinity. One day, however, she approached me and asked whether I went anywhere near a record shop while I was out on my rounds. Crimson-faced, I stammered that yes, I did. If she gave me 6/8d, would I mind buying River Deep, Mountain High for her? I bought the record at Kay's. Totally clueless, I failed to recognise this obvious overture. Nor did I twig when she used the same stratagem a week later. Never mind. The firm's Christmas "do" came not long afterwards. Alcohol (I had chipped in my five bob towards drinks), emboldened her and disinhibited me. I remember (but not very well) the swaying, rebounding, arm-in-arm walk from Clay Hill Trading Estate, by way of Royate Hill, to her parents' house in Heath Road, off Muller Road ...she ("Merry Christmas Missus") loudly hailing passers-by along the way. There were incompetent fumblings on the sofa in her parents' front room, my first experience in this line of country. We topped up our intake with a bottle of RSVP sherry from the off-licence at the Merchant's Arms pub ("The Merch"), and procured fried fish and chipped potatoes from an establishment in Stapleton Road, subsequently demolished for the elevated part of the M32. We ate them sitting in the dark on the swings in Eastville Park. But attraction is something to beware of. You can end up discovering that you made a hell of a mistake. With luck, a week or two's exposure of one personality to the other will make any incompatability obvious to both parties. She proposed to introduce me to what she unashamedly called "The In-Crowd", a noisy and boistrous mob of a hundred or so Mods which gathered every evening on the traffic island in Bristol's City Centre. This was not a proposal that appealed to the aloof Bentos spirit. To her I must have seemed a dull dog. Soon, at work, she was cutting me dead. The other memory associated with these shops can be briefly re-told. I was sitting in our van, parked at the kerb somewhere just here on the left, waiting for my driver, "Nobby", to return from one of his calls. The latest issue of Private Eye was due out, so I decided to cross over to the newsagent's to see if they had it in. A headscarfed woman of about 60 entered the shop ahead of me. I attempted to slip in behind her while the door was still open. Unfortunately she, not looking behind, fumbled for the door handle but instead placed her hand squarely on the Bentos wedding tackle. Puzzled, I suppose, by the unhandle-like form in her grasp, she moved her fingers around in rummaging, investigative movements for several seconds ...it seemed an eternity... before turning and discovering he
2328 Broadway St, Galveston, TX On January 7, 1859, Colonel James Moreau Brown, a prominent hardware merchant and banker, purchased four lots at the corner of 24th and Broadway in Galveston, on which to build a home. Referencing architectural pattern books current at the time, he modified several plans to design his future home. Using slave labor and skilled European craftsmen, Brown proceeded to build one of the first brick structures in Texas. The three-story house was built in Victorian Italianate style, with deep eaves, long windows and ornate verandas that were topped by lintels made of cast iron. The brick walls were made thirteen inches thick, to help protect against humidity and add strength to the structure. The interior of the home was laid out and designed around a central hall floor plan. Brown's wife, Rebecca Ashton, named the home in honor of one of her ancestors, Lt. Isaac Ashton, a hero in the U.S. Revolutionary War.  Civil WarThe house was completed in 1861. When the American Civil War began, the home became the headquarters for the Confederate Army and served in that capacity for the entire war, except for a brief period in the fall of 1862. In the fall of 1862, Galveston was surrendered to the Union Army, who made Ashton Villa their headquarters. The Union's occupation was short lived, however, as Galveston was re-taken by the Confederates during the Battle of Galveston in January 1863.  Fall of the confederacyOn June 19, 1865, Union General Gordon Granger and 2,000 federal troops arrived in Galveston, Texas, to take possession of the state and enforce the emancipation of its slaves. While standing on the balcony of Ashton Villa, Granger read the contents of “General Order No. 3”: The people of Texas are informed that, in accordance with a proclamation from the Executive of the United States, all slaves are free. This involves an absolute equality of personal rights and rights of property between former masters and slaves, and the connection heretofore existing between them becomes that between employer and hired labor. The freedmen are advised to remain quietly at their present homes and work for wages. They are informed that they will not be allowed to collect at military posts and that they will not be supported in idleness either there or elsewhere. That day has since become known as Juneteenth, a name derived from a portmanteau of the words June and nineteenth. Former slaves in Galveston rejoiced in the streets with jubilant celebrations. Juneteenth celebrations began in Texas the following year. Across many parts of Texas, freed people pooled their funds to purchase land specifically for their communities’ increasingly large Juneteenth gatherings — including Houston’s Emancipation Park, Mexia’s Booker T. Washington Park, and Emancipation Park in Austin.  1900 stormBrown died in 1895, just five years before the 1900 hurricane devastated Galveston. However the house, with its thick brick walls, managed to withstand the storm's winds and infamous storm surge, while serving as shelter to Brown's widow and children. In the storm's aftermath and grade raising of the city, its basement was filled in with sand, and the surrounding grounds were topped with two feet of soil.  RecentThe home was sold in 1927 to the El Mina Shrine masonic order. Making very little changes to the building, the house served as their business offices and meeting hall until 1970, at which point it was put up for sale. Under the threat of demolition, the Galveston Historical Foundation raised $125,000 to purchase Ashton Villa. With additional funding from local foundations and the government, the process of restoring and refurnishing home began. Much of the original furniture and art was able to be retrieved, and the decision was made to open the home as a House Museum. On July 25, 1974, the Galveston Historical Foundation opened the home to the public to serve as a House Museum, visitors center and a place for special functions. Receiving more than 18 inches of water during Hurricane Ike, the first floor is currently undergoing restoration. Ashton Villa is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a recorded Texas Historic Landmark. -from Wikipedia
