Explore the history of Liverpool through maps, photos of the past and a portrait of the city’s people

In 1776, John Gore wrote the Liverpool Directory, an alphabetical list of the merchants, tradesmen and principle Inhabitants of Liverpool at this time. Today, we can gather data and find out information quickly and efficiently. This is an opportunity for visitors to draw upon the past and reflect upon how and what the data we generate today communicates about us in the future.

Take a glimpse back in time.

Have you ever wondered what a ‘Slopman’ did for a living, who had need of a ‘peruke’ or who were the residents of Lancelot’s Hey?
