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.
