Desmond Tucker is a born-and-bred Bristolian. Bedminster Boy is his story, but also the story of Bristol, a city that has seen many changes since Desmondís birth in 1929.

From his childhood during the Second World War to his work at a tour guide to his ministry at Saint Michael-on-the-Mount Church, Desmondís autobiography captures a snapshot of Bristol throughout the twentieth century.

The city today is very different to the one he was born in, but Desmond truly is, and always will be, a Bedminster Boy.
