    Default Liverpool's first history book.

    Hi,

    I've just started a new website about Liverpool's history, covering the period 1770 to 1870. - http://www.leverpoole.co.uk/

    Currently online: Liverpool's first history book, written by William Enfield and published in 1773. This contains a map of the area around Liverpool drawn up in 1768, and views of public buildings including the infirmary, churches etc.

    I've attached a section of the map, covering the city centre.


    Coming soon:
    Herdmans Pictorial Relics, published in 1856.
    Fisher's Lancashire Illustrated, published in 1830.
    List of Liverpool streets in 1871.


    ADVERTISING





    Thanks,

    Tony

    No, it's not the same one.
    There were at least 2 St George's Churches.
    Everton, opened 1814.
    The one with the steeple was in Derby Square, and was opened in 1734 on the site of the Castle.
    The Victoria Monument is on the site.
