The Illustrated History of
Liverpool's Suburbs

David Lewis

The Illustrated History of Liverpool's Suburbs is the first single-volume history of the development of the residential areas of the city. The author chronicles the growth of the suburbs from the early 19th century and illuminates the lives of people who lived in them. The narrative is illustrated with more than 200 photographs, drawings and maps from Liverpool Record Office – most of which have never been published before.

David Lewis shows how the countryside, farms and villages developed into the urban streets, residential areas, shopping districts and industrial estates that are so familiar today. In the course of the last 150 years, the outskirts of the city have been transformed, and they have expanded, in a way that would astonish Liverpool residents of just a few generations ago. In this detailed and fully illustrated account of the suburbs, the author offers a concise history of each district. He also features local anecdotes and folklore and recalls remarkable episodes and notable individuals who played their part in the story.
