In this fully revised and updated edition, with more than 90 per cent of the images wholly new, Liverpool The Great City showcases the resurgence of the port as a tourist, leisure, shopping and educational place. Visitors to the city arrive curious about the birthplace of the Mersey Sound, the home of the Beatles, the old staging post to the New World, the arrival port for wartime Atlantic convoys, to see the city that boasts two important cathedrals or two top-flight soccer teams - a wide variety of reasons. They invariably depart surprised by the breadth and beauty of the city architecture, the magnificent waterfront skyline and, more recently, the quality of the shopping. Liverpool The Great City provides a preview of the city, a treasured keepsake, a wonderful present for a family member or perhaps those who no longer live in the area and are curious to see how its changing.
The images are up-to-date, some deliberately taken just days before the book went to press, including the unique sight of the three Cunard Queens together on the Mersey. All are presented in a large format hardback that does justice to both the quality and importance of the photographs and of the city itself.
