Garth England was born in Bristol General Hospital in 1935, four years before World War II broke out. His mother named him after a blind pianist in a romantic novel by Florence Barclay, a blockbuster in its day. Garth spent almost all of his seventy-nine years living in neighbourhoods in south Bristol: Knowle West, Hengrove, Totterdown and Bedminster. The jobs he held throughout his life – paperboy, telegram boy, milkman and railway man – meant that he had a deep understanding of the rhythm, architecture and people of this part of the city.
