Another fine photograph of the Overhead Railway, taken just as the train is just leaving the Pierhead station. I’ve probably written enough about the loss of the railway … so on to my main subject, the publication of my book based on this blog. The Streets of Liverpool will be available as from tomorrow. Not only does it include many of my blogs from last year but also the full colour Bartholomew’s Pocket Atlas and Guide to Liverpool (1928). I have often used sections of the atlas to pinpoint streets and it is an invaluable reference for local and family historians. The book (?9.99) is available from Waterstones, WH Smith, Book Clearance Centre etc. and also on Amazon. I will also be selling (and signing) copies at the Big History Show at St George’s Hall this Saturday and Sunday (another reason to visit this excellent show). I hope to meet you there.
