1825 LIVERPOOL Sundry Information ~ No.1


When I returned home from my exhausting day tramping the streets, one of my children handed me a booklet containing the addresses of some of the Public Buildings in Liverpool, together with the names of the persons who oversee the vaious administrations. As some of your relatives may be found here, I thought I would settle down in front of the fire and write out a list for you. I will probably get to the end of the 'C's and then it will be supper time!
