    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?

    Griifiths' History of Toxteth Park is still about the only old source for all that area.
    It's about 100 years old now, and it's been reprinted, and is available in all local libraries.

    Paul Christian at Toxteth.net found many minor inaccuracies in the book. Paul traced the boundary of Toxteth himself in detail and his boundary on the site map is the most accurate one. The line even runs through the back room of the Royal pub in Smithdown Rd.

    Paul Christian shouldn't be considered an expert, though.
    I agree that the boundary he's done is very good, but he's been too busy to do anything to toxteth.net since July 2006.
    Prior to that I sent him a lot of corrections.
    Griffiths himself updated his book about 1923, and while it's not perfect, it's more accurate than toxteth.net (which quotes it wholesale, anyway).
    I wouldn't have mentioned any of this if Waterways hadn't posted the above.
