Georgian Liverpool by Hugh Hollinghurst.

Liverpool grew rapidly in the Georgian period as it was a major port for Atlantic trade, rivalling any other city in the UK outside London in terms of prosperity and population. During the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries the city embarked on an ambitious building programme to demonstrate its new-found wealth and power. Although some of these buildings have been lost today, much of Georgian Liverpool remains. A vital part of the city's heritage is the legacy of the Georgian town planners and the magnificent buildings they have left behind. 

In this book author Hugh Hollinghurst explores the Georgian buildings of Liverpool. Alongside the well-known landmarks and the public buildings, there are the docks, commercial and industrial buildings, churches and a wealth of squares, streets, terraces and individual houses that survive from that era. The author also covers Georgian buildings in Liverpool that are no longer standing, including other dock and mercantile buildings, lost public structures, leisure and entertainment venues and churches. Illustrated throughout, all those interested in the history of Liverpool will find this a fascinating exploration of the Georgian heritage of this city.
