Liverpool has a distinguished railway heritage. Its lines can be dated back to 1823 with the foundation of the Liverpool & Manchester Railway, and seven years later the world’s first passenger train departed from Crown Street station, which was itself the world’s first passenger station. Liverpool is also famous for the Liverpool Overhead Railway, active from 1893 to 1956. Liverpool’s Railways Through Time tells the fascinating story of Liverpool’s railways from their very inception to the present day. Using a selection of historic and contemporary images, author Hugh Hollinghurst invites the reader to take the scenic route through this historic city.
