Protest at the Georgian House

Protest at the Georgian House


Photograph of a protest made by actors from the Bristol Old Vic Theatre at the Georgian House – a period house open to the public as a museum. This photograph shows the actors being escorted from the building. They were protesting about the limited information provided in the house about the involvement of the Pinney family in the slave trade. Pinney was a sugar merchant who owned a sugar plantation in Nevis, in the Caribbean. He built and lived in the Georgian House, in Great George Street, Bristol.
