Liverpool – the port of a king, the birthplace of The Beatles, the gateway to a new life for migrants, and the home of proud ‘Scousers’. In its 800-year history, the city has been all these things and more. From a tiny fishing village, to second city of Empire and later European Capital of Culture, Liverpool has claimed a rare place in the consciousness of the world through its industry, creativity and attitude.
Liverpool – the story of a city celebrates that city and the millions who have inspired, thrived, created, fought, worked and lived here. Described through the words of those who have known her, and illustrated with the collections of the Museum of Liverpool, this is an essential introduction to the place Carl Jung described as ‘the pool of life’.
A great port. A global city. A wondrous place. A people’s republic! If ever there was a city whose history deserved to be told, that city is Liverpool.
