Merseyside Tales: Curious and Amazing True Stories from History by Ken Pye This fantastic collection of true tales celebrates the strange and curious secrets of Merseyside’s history. The fifty stories inside – from the lion in the wheelbarrow on the tightrope to the twelve young women ‘smothered by the incurable malady they caught of some sailors’, the true tale of the ‘man in the iron coffin’ and the strange and mysterious disappearance of the Everest mountaineers from Birkenhead – uncover some truly amazing and extraordinary facets of the area’s history and heritage.
Richly illustrated and compiled by Liverpool’s own historian Ken Pye, this book will delight residents and visitors alike.
