    Default Books on architure

    Been looking at two books I've had for a bit.Buildings of Liverpool by the Liverpool Heritage Bureau,1978.And Liverpool by Joseph Sharples,2004. Both have 'walks' around the city,the Heritage book also has a wider area.With lots of info about the buildings.The Sharples,an architectural historian at L,pool Uni, book giving details of the architect.Well worth a look at if you can find them.

    I'll second the Sharples guide, great! And it's pocket sized - just.

    Just picked up "Liverpools Monuments" in a book sale in Kirkby library for 55p
    I frequently borrowed this book over the years now I have my own.
    Also a book on fighter planes from the start of aviation to 1994 when the book was published. It cost ?50 when new, I got it for ?2.20p. It weighs about 8 pound with over 2,500 photos and 3000 line drawings
    THE BEST VITAMIN FOR MAKING FRIENDS ? B.1
