A while ago we had a look at Liverpool not long before I was born, and 1953 looked like a strange and long ago place. Today we’re going well back before any of us were born, to an apparently idyllic Liverpool of 1775.

Where we now have the Cathedral and Upper Duke Street, the harvest is being brought in. So close to the docks and the river, we are well outside the town. The line of trees on the right of this picture is Mount Pleasant, where a few years earlier, William Roscoe, son of a market gardener, has been born, in 1753. We, and the town will be hearing a lot more from this rural neighbour.
