Dockers - Their Life and Legacy on the Liverpool Waterfront (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


The docker is a symbol of Liverpool - just like the Liver Bird. Proud men who were a vital part of the changing fortunes of the Port of Liverpool. Compiled by local author and journalist Peter Grant, the son of a docker, this 84-page souvenir special explores the colourful history of Liverpool's dockland and the legacy of the legendary men who worked there. Dockers are the world's greatest storytellers and this publication is full of fascinating tales of life on the waterfront. Featuring interviews with Tom O'Connor, Mickey Finn, Stan Boardman, Brian Jacques, Jimmy McGovern, Alan Bleasdale and Ricky Tomlinson; the stars and celebrities who owe dockers a living reveal their memories - from the pubs on every corner to the passion of the strikes - giving interesting, enlightening and often hilarious first-hand accounts of life in and around the docks. With over a hundred photographs from the archives of the Liverpool Daily Post and Echo, 'Dockers' takes you on a compelling journey inside the Mersey quayside's lives and loves, from the vital role of the Overhead Railway and tug boats, to the dockers' witty and comical nicknames for each other.

Packed with images and stories of bygone days, this is a tribute and celebration of the Liverpool docker - past, present and future.
