I called into Liverpool Town Hall today to witness the unveiling of the UNESCO inscription marking Liverpool’s status as a World Heritage city.
The inscription says:
“The World Heritage Committee has inscribed Liverpool – Maritime Mercantile City on the World Heritage List
Inscription on this List confirms the exceptional and universal value of a cultural or natural site which requires protection for the benefit of all humanity.
Date of Inscription – July 2004”
It was also the launch of the book published by Liverpool University press ‘Liverpool – Maritime Mercantile City’
