Hello! It looks like my hopes for getting the second historic maps article to you this week have come to nought. It’s amazing how much time arranging a wedding soaks up!
So, before I head off on honeymoon, as I can’t bring you the usual detail of stories, I’ll resort to the bulleted list:
- The BBC have shown archive footage of the 1960 fire in Henderson’s department store. A link to the Inside Out programme which showed the footage is available from the BBC Liverpool article on the fire.
- One of the earliest railway tunnels – Bourne tunnel in Rainhill – has been listed at Grade II. Buildings are listed if they are of nationally significant architectural value.
Well, I hope that can tide you over until mid-April, when I return. I promise much more exciting articles in the weeks and months to come, on all aspects of the history of the city of Liverpool. Until then: au revoir.
