American Travellers in Liverpool

First Edition

edited by David Seed

Liverpool University Press

Liverpool was the first British port of call for most American travellers throughout the nineteenth century. Many left accounts of their experiences in the city, providing fascinating glimpses of a Liverpool life that has now disappeared. The excerpts collected here give a series of American views of Liverpool and demonstrate the rich variety of cultural contacts between the two nations during the nineteenth century.
