A full-page illustrated article in the Bristol Post of 10 July 2018 publicised the project to catalogue Brislington's picture postcards from the so-called Golden Age a century ago.

A century earlier, a series of drawings and paintings captured images of Brislington (now in the Braikenridge Collection). This coincidence of centenary and bi-centenary invites us to consider what can we do now, so people 100 years in the future, will not only look back and be glad of what we did, but will also be inspired in turn to consider those who will be living here a century later...
