Bristol

Bristol City in western England, M.E. Bridgestow, from O.E. Brycgstow, lit. "assembly place by a bridge" (see STOW (Cf. stow)). A local peculiarity of pronunciation adds -l to words ending in vowels. Of a type of pottery, 1776; of a type of glass, 1880. In British slang, "breast," 1961, from Bristol cities, rhyming slang for titties.
