James Crosby (1838 - 1901)
In 1884, James Crosby’s pioneering series in the Liberal Bristol Mercury ‘The Homes of the Bristol Poor’ caused a sensation. The son of a Bristol mariner, his passionate and detailed depiction of the misery caused by the bad conditions in which so many Bristolians lived, helped to change government attitudes about the need for decent housing for the workers.

About Journey to Justice Bristol
The Peoples Republic of Stokes Croft (PRSC) and Journey to Justice Bristol (JToJ) are participating in a project to visualise Bristol’s history of activism and struggles for social justice.
As part of a variety of exciting and innovative activities for the JToJ event throughout October 2017, PRSC is working with JToJ to celebrate and honour key activists in Bristol that have contributed to and inspired the social movement but have not been recognised for their actions. To raise awareness about these people, we feature their likeness and ideas on fine bone china mugs and prints.
