This is an important second book from Writing on the Wall based upon the Granby community and shows how parts of that community had moved from the southern docks around Pitt street 'up the hill' to the present day area we know and love in Liverpool 8.
Pitt Street was the heart of the original 'Sailortown' and epitomised Liverpool's diverse cultural heritage that became well established from the latter part of the 19th Century.
This book extends the themes of What's Your Granby Story? not with tales of woe but of laughter, tenacity and aspiration. It shows through its stories what people can achieve, through sticking together and through integration. (Joe Farrag, Granby Resident)
