Colston Tower, Colston Avenue, Bristol
Colston Tower, Colston Avenue, Bristol
One of the more distinguished 1960s towers, its long, clunky podium extending towards the camera. The windows are set back behind balconied projections. Note the lettering at the top. I understand the clock, and presumably silver appendage, is a later addition. By Moxley Jenner & Partners, 1961-73.
