    That's interesting.
    Alfred Waterhouse - whose signature appears - was the father of the famous architect, also called Alfred Waterhouse.

    Very interesting, Kev. Thanks for posting this. I could read it, though I had to blow it up to do so readily. It is recognized in the document that Aigburth was part of Garston. It occurs to me that because the document stipulates that the force would be established for the coming winter that it was probably only a temporary organization of police for Aigburth rather than that there was an intention to establish a permanent police force for Aigburth.
