Notes on the Geography of The United Kingdom: Liverpool: Photo 30

world pictures The United Kingdom: Liverpool

Shipping wealth radiated through the city, which grew from 5,000 people in 1700 to 78,000 in 1800, 685,000 in 1900, and 856,000 in 1931. Since then, it has slumped to under 440,000, but the old financial district lingers around the town hall, which was built by John Wood between 1749 and 1754. Wood was known for his previous work at Bristol, and a contemporary in Liverpool wrote that "on all hands he is agreed to be a great genius." Caution: the dome was added in 1802 and the portico in 1811. (Sharples, p.43.)
