Man in top hat at Champion's Dock, Bristol

Attributed to: Calvert Richard Jones

Location: Bristol

This view of Champion's Dock (also known as Merchant's Dock) shows the great floating dock at Hotwell's in Bristol.  There are paddle steamers moored behind the seated gentleman wearing a top hat.  Beyond the wall is asquare rigger in dry dock.  If Calvert Jones did take this photograph then there is a possibility that the seated gentleman is William Henry Fox Talbot.
