My Square Mile Pilot, History of Repair & Maintenance Business

My Square Mile focused on the histories of repair business between 1938-2018 within a square mile area of south Bristol (covering in part Victoria Park, East and North Street).

Drawing on insurance archives, business directories and local library resources a brief overview of the types of repair business across five periods (1938, 1958, 1978, 1998, 2018) was created. Information on the location, type of business and repairs offered were categorised and mapped, with a focus on electronic repairs. Accompanying the research a selection of repair business adverts with selected, re-worked and screen printed.
