Bounded by the River Dee in the west and by the River Mersey in the east, the Wirral peninsula is a remarkable place. The Wirral Through Timeis a rare insight into the amazingly diverse history of this part of the country, a mishmash of both ancient and modern artefacts and locations that are often overlooked by the casual observer.
Reproduced in full colour, this is an exciting examination of the Wirral, its towns and villages, and what they meant to its residents throughout the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Readers are invited to follow a timeline of events and watch the changing face of the peninsula as Daniel K. Longman guides us through the local streets. There is something for everyone here, whether they have lived in the area all their lives or whether they are just visiting for the first time.
Daniel K. Longman is a longstanding author having published numerous books on local history. He also produces a weekly column for the Liverpool Echo newspaper on the theme of nostalgia, owns his own tour company, See Liverpool Tours, and has a strong interest in criminal history. He is a graduate of English from Liverpool John Moores University and has recently completed a Diploma in Law. He has a passion for history and is always on the look-out to promote the heritage of his home town.
