Photo competition: Winner of best historic photo

Quarrying for pennant sandstone was still taking place in the valley in the 1950s as this photo by John Dike shows.

The photos are great - any chance we could see all of the winning entries? (I didn't have time to make it to the school.)

Great photograph. I would love to have seen what Broomhill quarry looked like before it was filled in and a car park was built at the end of River View. I have been to Bristol's record office to see if they have any old photo's of the quarry,but unfortunately they did not have any.
