E. W. Godwin: Civic Society talk
”E.W Goodwin: The Greatest Aesthete Of Them All’”
Edward Godwin was one of Bristol’s most eminent Victorians : archaeologist, architect, designer of highly original furniture and creator of theatre sets and costumes. He was influential in the Aesthetic Movement that created the “look” of Victorian England. He was passionate about Bristol and its architectural legacy, setting up the city’s first Conservation Society.
