Liverpool Docks Through Time

paperback    ISBN 13: 9781445604145 | ISBN 10: 1445604140

The Port of Liverpool handles more container trade with the United States than any other port in the UK and now also serves more than 100 other non-EU destinations, from China to Africa and the Middle East, and from Australia to South America. Liverpool has been an important port since the seventeenth century, when the city began to import West Indian sugar and Virginian tobacco, exporting Lancashire textiles in return. As trade expanded through the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, so too did the Liverpool Docks.
In Liverpool Docks Through Time, Ian Collard uses a wide collection of photographs to guide us through the process of change and growth, from the early years through the massive expansion of the nineteenth century and the reconstruction and rebuilding that followed the Second World War to the new patterns of trade that emerged later in the twentieth century and up to the present day. Covering everything from White Star ocean liners to the tugs of the modern docks and from hard-working freighters to restored sailing ships, this is a comprehensive guide.
