    Default Canals and Transport

    Liverpool’s status as ‘second city of empire' was to some extent dependent on the ability of the Corporation and the city merchants to maintain, improve and expand dock facilities.
    Improving transport links between Liverpool and other city's like Leeds, Manchester and London was also very important. Coastal shipping was of course important and continued to provide an excellent service well into the 20th century.
