   My family and myself emigrated in 1959 to Bristol, England, from
Romania. And when we started travelling through Europe, we wondered why
so many hotels were named Bristol.
Maybe because of the importance of the very old Bristol port, a center
for a lot of trade and travel early as the 15th century,
it held a major slave-trade until its abolishment, etc. Bristol has one
of the oldest railway stations in the world, opened in 1840 (Victorian
architecture) and was a good place to live in. It is a big and important
university town. In "Treasure Island" there is a description of the old
town around the port, (which still exists) with its narrow streets, and
old, dark taverns.
