Liverpool: Seaport City
So much of Liverpool's wealth of historical buildings has been destroyed during the past 30 years, much in connection with the redevelopment of the former dockland area, but also throughout the city. Once regarded as one of the power-house cities of the empire, the wealth generated through the port was reflected in its architectural heritage - a product of civic pride and industrial might. Yet Liverpool was always a city of contrasts, of rich and poor living closely together. This historical look at Liverpool provides nostalgia through presenting long-forgotten images of the city, its buildings, street scenes and its transport and industrial heritage, accompanied by easy to read, informative captions. Areas to be covered include:
The Dock Road
The much loved overhead Railway
Redeveloped & Demolished Streets.
As well as giving an historic account of Liverpool and its buildings, Liverpool's transport links and railways are also detailed. This interesting and informative volume appeals to a wide market by conveying the transformation of the city perfectly over the last decades, combining informative text and fascinating photography.
