Merseyside's Own

by Christine Dawe
£12.99   paperback  The History Press Ltd (2012)

Merseyside Merseyside has been the birthplace or home to literally hundreds of extraordinary men and women. In this book Christine Dawe features a great many of them – from all eras and all walks of life.
 
Modern-day noteworthy figures, such as Kim Cattrall, Daniel Craig, Wayne Rooney and Patricia Routledge, rub shoulders with the historical great and good, including Sir Thomas Beecham, George Stevenson and Sir Alfred Holt – the founder of the famous Cunard shipping line.
 
This book contains more than a hundred mini-biographies of Merseyside’s famous sons and daughters – all of whom are illustrated. A perfect souvenir for visitors to the area, this is also essential reading for Merseysiders everywhere, and is sure to appeal to those wanting to know more about these people’s contributions to the Merseyside we know today.
