Then and Now Take Two – Grosvenor Hotel

This is a regular series of blogs about photographs of the same place taken years apart. The first of the posts in this series was of a council building in Manchester. I always thought I should give then and now photographs a go. However what I have started to notice is that I have been doing Then and Now photographs unintentionally over the years and have been taking photographs of the same thing or place from the same view or perspective years apart. Now this has come to my attention I have started to intentionally take photographs of the same place.

I recently posted some then and now photographs of The Grosvenor Hotel in Redcliffe Bristol.

The Grosvenor Hotel in Redcliffe Bristol, which has been an eyesore for ages was demolished this week. I was looking through my photographs of the hotel and realised, I had taken some similar photographs of the ruined hotel.

I was back in Bristol in February 2024 and took a photograph of the partially demolished hotel from the same perspective as the other photographs I had taken of the hotel over the last few years.

This photograph was taken in August 2023.

This was a similar shot taken in February 2022.

This photograph was taken in June 2021.

It was a pity it was left for so long, it was a really nice looking building.
