Statue of him was pulled down and thrown into the harbour by protesters last year. There are still streets there called "Whiteladies Road" and "Blackboy Hill." Yeesh that last part is bleak. And yeah, they mentioned Bristol in the chapter with Liverpool as well. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
