The city’s bones

P1180028.JPGToday one of my favorite radio programmes, File Urbani, covers the music from Liverpool. Not just the Fab Four. And how Liverpool in those years became a magnet also for the youth of Manchester and Leeds.

Interesting bits about the history of the city and its rich immigration heritage. And its economy which flourished in the 19th century, thanks both to innovative technologies such as the docks where ships could be much more easily unloaded, and to slave trade…A guide explains which buildings in town were founded thanks to the receipts of slave trade.
