1825 LIVERPOOLSundry Information ~ No.3


Following my visit to the waterfront yesterday, and my subsequent jaunt to dock-side tavern with my seafaring friends, I have decided to take a bit of a rest today and carry on with my list of addresses of Public Buildings from the booklet my children gave me. The weather outside is still cold, but much brighter, but the fire-side and my favourite clay-pipe are much more inviting, so here we go......
