1825 LIVERPOOL Waterfront ~ No.2

My reference to 'tramping' is that I am also going up and down all the streets of 1825 Liverpool and recording who lives where. I have done all the 'A' and 'B' streets, and will be starting on the 'C's soon. I have worn out several pairs of clogs already!! The streets have appeared on LANCSGEN and ENG-LIVERPOOL sites. If anyone is desperate to see them, contact me and I will see what I can do.
Before my tramping starts again, I thought I would just go down to the Docks for a second time to see what other vessels might be coming and going. In a few more years (1858 to be precise) my great grandfather William Simpson would have sat in his Sitting Room window watching the comings and goings of all the ships ~ he lived on the Landing Stage. In 1939, as a young boy, I went to stay with my great aunt (Violet Simpson, one of William's daughters) on the Landing Stage and I remember the liners and troop ships arriving and departing. What a sad thing the Stage is now that the liners have gone!
Anyway, back to 1825!

My next visit to the quays and docks will be to look at destinations, vessels and masters of Coasting Traders. But before that I will try out my new boots and tramp a few more of the Liverpool Streets of 1825.
