Synopsis

FROM the rattle of the Overhead Railway to the roar of the airport runway - Liverpool has always been a city on the move. Join us on a nostalgic journey through the award-winning photo archives of the Liverpool Post and Echo, from horses and handcarts to the lost trams; the Mersey ferries; the birth and growth of the railways - from Stephenson's Rocket to Britain's last steam train service from Lime Street, and much much more. This latest title in the bestselling heritage series looks at how transport transformed the city - from the impact of Britain's first ring road, Queens Drive, to the building of Merseyrail and the tunnels. Do you remember being taught how to use the first zebra crossings, when the police had their own fleet of 'Z' cars, and we'd hit the road for awaydays with the Reds and Blues or on those first package holidays from Speke Airport to the sunny Costas. Liverpool: A City On The Move, is a nostalgic look at the history of our transport.

At the heart of the story are the people, in a time when the school run was just what it said - 'a run to school' - or when commuting meant standing in long queues in miserable weather waiting for a bus or train (well, some things never change!) All of our yesterdays are reflected in the pages of this special collectable 84-page magazine, featuring over a hundred archive photographs and the fascinating stories behind them.
