1825 LIVERPOOL Streets ~ No.22


It is now nearly one month since I ventured out and walked from DANSIE STREET to the south end of DRY DOCK. I did visit the Old Warehouse in the Liverpool Canal Basin two days after my walk and fourteen days ago went to see my friend WILLIAM BANNING at the Post Office. Having returned from that outing drenched to the skin, I succumbed to a very bad bout of influenza which kept me lying low for a week. Since then, I have been repairing the damage to my house caused by the runaway brewery dray. This in itself was not difficult ~ a new window frame and repairs to the brickwork. However, getting rid of ale soaked furnishings and the odour, was another matter......
Anyway I am sure you are waiting for me to get on with my perambulations and donning my new leather boots made specially for me by a well known Liverpool Cordwainer, I am off to tramp the cobbles in the very long DUKE STREET...............

By this time not only do I realize I have new boots but having eaten early, I am somewhat faint from lack of sustinence. Furthermore, the heavens are threatening rain and so retracing my steps a little I enter the portals of the Duke Street Hotel at No.132 where Elizabeth Ellis is the proprietor, and ordering a light repast of oatcakes, cheese and cold ham, I settle down in front of a cheerful fire with a jug of excellent ale. The clientele in this rather lavish establishment seems to be mostly of the professional class, and I am getting engrossed in some lively discussion on matters of the day. After some considerable time I realize that there are only about two hours of daylight left, and I saying farewell to my new found companions I set off again for DUKE STREET [Wavertree Road].

By now the light is failing fast and a light drizzle is falling on the round cobble stones in the streets. People are hurrying in the gathering gloom wrapped up well against a chill wind blowing from the river. A lamplighter, armed with a long pole, passes by with a merry quip and disappears into the distance leaving a string of gently glowing globes of orange light behind him. Gathering pace, I quickly make for home and a hearty meal and a well deserved sleep........................ My next street travels will start with DUNCAN STREET EAST, but not before I find out who is carrying what by Land and Water and a return visit to the Post Office to see my friend WILLIAM BANNING..........
