1825 LIVERPOOL Streets ~ No. 33


As you will remember I finished my last walk in Hargraves Buildings on the east side of the Town Hall, and then called in to see a distant relative at No. 54 Hanover Street. All this was many months ago in the spring. Since then we have slipped into summer and following much work on the house, and visiting grandchildren in the country, I feel the time has come to resume my rambles. The weather now is hot, and from our upstairs windows we can see over the roof tops to the river in the distance. The distant noise of children playing in the street, the cries of the barrow boys and the clatter of horse-hoofs on the cobbles, all adds to my urge to get out and about. Descending the stairs, I pick up some cheese and bread [freshly baked] and putting them in a small canvas bag, I set off for the Beer House on the corner to buy a stone jar of ale and start off for HARRINGTON STREET....

By this time the sun has reached high enough to filter down into the busy streets and the hot cobbles were beginning to strike hot through my boots, so I decided to take a break and sat under some trees in an adjacent graveyard. After consuming my cheese and bread I washed it down with the ale, and then had a short nap before continuing on my travels to.....

At this point I decided to call it a day, and being some way from home I called at a small tavern for some food and a drink, before managing to get a lift with a drayman......................I arrived home just as the sun was going down, casting shafts of golden red across the sky and catching the tops of the small waves on the river. When I resume my travels it will be in HIGH PARK AVENUE.
