A lively, authoritative, and practical guide to the buildings of a city which in 2008 will be European capital of culture. For 200 years Liverpool was one of the most prosperous towns in Britain, and one of the greatest ports in the world. Economic success is reflected in a wealth of late Georgian housing, extravagant Victorian and Edwardian offices, proud civic buildings, and the unique architecture and engineering of the docks. A frenzy of demolition and rebuilding in the 1960s was followed by long decline, now giving way to a new construction boom. All these aspects of Liverpool are covered in this essential book.
