A selection of the quirkiest stone carvings on buildings in Corn Street, one of the principal streets in the historic centre of Bristol.
It largely escaped destruction during the Bristol Blitz, and a number of historic buildings survive:
The Exchange, built in 1741-43 as a corn and trade exchange
The Old Post Office, built in 1746
The Commercial Rooms, built in 1810 as coffee rooms for merchants
The Old Council House, built in 1824-27
53 & 55 Corn Street built in 1854-58 for the West of England Bank
St Nicholas Market inside The Exchange.
