The Red Lodge Savage Wigwam Bristol UK RPPC

Wouldn't you like a den like this. Actually this is a room called the Savage Wigwam where Bristol (UK) artists use to meet. Now entertainers and laymen can come here. It is part of the Red Lodge built in the 1500's. Queen Elizabeth the First stayed here, and later it became a reform school for girls. Not quite sure what its used for now except for special events.

I'm the guy who bought this wonderful postcard. Although I now live in Indiana, I'm a native of Bristol and got the card to add to my collection.

The Red Lodge has been a museum since the 1920's when the Savages gave the building to the city - keeping a lease for themselves. I've been there many times, it's one of the gems of Bristol but still relatively unknown.

The Savages are still going strong in the same building and still a male-only club.
