Our Liverpool

Our Liverpool

This ebook edition contains the full text version as per the book. Doesn’t include original photographic and illustrated material. OUR LIVERPOOL is an oral history about the real Liverpool – about the city before its slick transformation to European City of Culture and about the spirit that remains at its heart. Here, at last, is Liverpool’s grievous and glorious past. And here, through the people’s voices, we find old Liverpool, without the gift-wrap. Its stories pulsate with the rhythms of an alternately funny, flippant, belligerent, stubborn and warm heart, and they broadcast the values of a community, which are the city’s true legacy to the modern world. Piers Dudgeon has listened to dozens of people who remember the city as it was, and who have lived through its many changes. They talk of childhood and education, of work and entertainment, of family, community values, health, politics, religion and music. Their stories will make you laugh and cry. It is people’s own memories that make history real and this engrossing book captures them vividly.
