The Spirit of Liverpool showcases the resurgence of the port as a tourist, leisure, shopping and educational place. Visitors to the city arrive curious about the birthplace of the Mersey Sound, the home of the Beatles, the old staging post to the New World, the arrival port for wartime Atlantic convoys, to see the city that boasts two important cathedrals or two top-flight soccer teams – a wide variety of reasons.
They invariably depart surprised by the breadth and beauty of the city architecture, the magnificent waterfront skyline and, more recently, the quality of the shopping. The Spirit of Liverpool provides a preview of the city, a treasured keepsake, a wonderful present for a family member or perhaps those who no longer live in the area and are curious to see how it is changing.
The images are up-to-date, sometimes quirky, often revealing. All are presented in a handy, pocket-sized format hardback that makes it a readily accessible companion and record of this most vibrant of cities.
