  As described in "A History of Liverpool" in the year 1907

This swift growth of commerce has brought with it a steady and growing inrush of population, even more varied in character than the previous age had welcomed. Census returns scarcely indicate the nature or extent of this growth of population, because the census returns only relate to the population within the municipal boundary, which, until 1895, remained fixed at the limits laid down in 1835, when Everton, Kirkdale and the populous parts of West Derby and Toxteth were added to the original township.

It was not until 1895 that the townships of Walton and Wavertree, the remnant of Toxteth, and another section of West Derby were incorporated in the city. Five years later the township of Garston (once a sister ' berewick ' of Liverpool, and like it dependent on the manor of West Derby) was also included.

Category: history

Address: The Borough Gaol Great Howard Street, Centre-Town, L.1 - 1843

  As described in "Smith's Strangers Guide to Liverpool" in the year 1843

THE BOROUGH GAOL, situated in Great Howard-street, was erected during the last century, on a plan recommended by the philanthropist Howard, and from its open and rather elevated situation, is a healthy place of confinement for the unfortunate individuals incarcerated therein. Till 1811, it was occupied as a prison for French prisoners of war, since which period it has been used as the Borough Gaol. From the report of the Rev. T. Carter, chaplain of this gaol, it appears that during the year ending 30th September, 1841, there were committed 2,943 males, and 2,542 females, total 5,485. Of debtors, there were 366, viz., 342 males and 24 females, and the average daily number of all classes was 550.

As described in "A History of Liverpool" in the year 1907

The captain of this vessel, one Hymers, reported to his owners that he had been attacked by a French privateer much larger than the Shaw, and crammed with men. After a desperate fight, Captain Hymers came to the end of his ammunition ; but he and all his men pulled off their stockings, and filling them with nails, scraps of iron and carpenters' tools, fired off a final volley which fortunately drove off the enemy.

Such men were well able to take care of themselves. Yet many Liverpool sailors, as in previous wars, pined in French prisons. But they were probably less numerous than the French prisoners in Liverpool.

In previous wars the old Tower and the powder magazine on Brownlow Hill had been sufficient to contain all who were brought captive into the town. But in 1793 the government found it necessary to hire from the corporation the new Borough Gaol which had been built in Great Howard Street in 1786, but had not yet been used. Even this, however, was insufficient to accommodate the prisoners, who in 1799 numbered no less than 4,009,

These French prisoners were indeed a feature of Liverpool during the war. Cheerful and resourceful, they acted little plays which the townsmen went to see, and added to their comforts by the manufacture and sale of ingenious and pretty toys. One prisoner, who was released at the brief peace of Amiens in 1802, was said to have made no less than three hundred guineas by this means.

  As described in "Smith's Strangers Guide to Liverpool" in the year 1843

ST. JOHNS MARKET. This extensive building is situated in Great Charlotte-street, near Clayton and Williamson Squares, and was erected from the designs of Mr. Foster, in 1822. It is built of brick, and is 183 yards long, and 45 yards wide, enclosing an area of 8235 square yards. The roof is light and in five ranges, with side lights, supported on 116 slender cast-iron pillars twenty-five feet high, and the building is divided into five avenues, extending the entire length. It is lighted by 136 windows, and has numerous entrances. The walls are lined by shops, and the sides of the different avenues are occupied by stalls, on which are offered for sale provisions of every description.

The total number of shops, stalls, and standings, amounts to 669, which, in 1840-41, realized the sum of 5,344 to the corporation as rent. Below the south-west end of the building are a number of store cellars. On entering this market the stranger cannot fail to be astonished at the magnitude and lightness of this extensive building ; and at night, when lighted by gas, it presents a brilliant appearance. It is closed at eight o'clock every evening, except Wednesdays and Saturdays, when it is open till ten.

THE CORPORATION BATHS

were erected from Mr. Foster's designs at an expense of 30,763. They are situated between George's Dock and the river; are 239 feet in length, and 87 feet wide. The centre part of the principal elevation projects, and on each side is a colonnade, formed by coupled columns, eighty-six feet in length, and eight feet wide. The gentlemen's baths are at the north end. The principal bath is forty-five feet long by twenty-seven feet wide, provided with numerous comfortable dressing-rooms. Private tepid, vapour, and shower-baths, are adjoining. The ladies' baths are similarly arranged, at the south end of the building. The water is received from the river, and filtered till it is perfectly free from impurities, and a fresh supply is constantly flowing into the baths. The charges are very moderate.

GEORGE'S DOCK.

In 1762 an act was obtained for the erection of this dock, which was completed at an expense of 20,000 in 1771. It is usually appropriated to vessels of the larger description, and the same regulations are observed respecting the sides of the dock on which they are loaded and discharged, as already noticed for Prince's Dock. At the south end is a large vessel fitted up as a church for the use of seamen ; but there is some prospect of its place being supplied by a substantial erection on land, in the immediate neighbourhood.

The Manchester New Quay Company's basin and sheds occupy the space next to George's Dock.

GEOEGE'S DOCK BASIN

is situated between Prince's and George's Docks, opposite St. Nicholas' Church, and is connected with them both. George's Pier, at high water, presents the liveliest scene to be found in the neighbourhood of the docks, as nearly all the steamers belonging to the port, as well as the numerous ferry boats, &c., make this pier, and the slips attached to it, their place of landing. Opposite the broad steps a floating landing stage is moored, which is connected with the pier at low water, for the convenience of passengers by the ferry and other steamers.

ST. JOHN'S FISH MARKET

is situated on the opposite side of Great Charlotte-street, and was opened on 8th February, 1837. It contains nineteen commodious shops, fifty-six stalls, and twenty-two vaults underneath. The building has a handsome front which is rather elevated above the level of the street, and is entered by two flights of steps. It is entirely appropriated to the sale of fish, and the tables of the principal stalls are of white marble. The regulations regarding cleanliness are strictly enforced by the market constables, and from the lofty and airy construction of the building, the nerves of the most delicate need not be offended on entering this market.
