Beginning life on the banks of the Mersey flanked by a castle and the adjoining 'Pool', Liverpool has grown into a city of worldwide fame with many fine streets and a magnificent waterfront. It is a city with an unrivalled reputation as a pool of talent and culture that is the envy of many British cities. This fact-filled book tells the story of Liverpool through its landmark buildings, streets and suburbs, exploring Liverpool's history from its origins as a humble little port of seven streets to its emergence as the second city of the British Empire.
