In May we spoke to local City Council Community Historian Steve Binns. Steve agreed to a filmed interview and talked about Bold Street in the 1800’s. He gave a real insight into the atmosphere at the time and the significant changes that have occurred to the street over the decades.
Also, prior to our conversation we had very little detail about Jonas Bold (whom the street was named after), and it was Steve himself who confirmed that Jonas was in fact a prominent slave trader. Click here to watch the interview.
