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

But in 1868 the spirit of improvement revived again, and the first question taken in hand was the provision of parks. In that year parliamentary powers were obtained for the creation of no less than three great public pleasure-grounds - Sefton, Newsham and Stanley Parks, costing in all 670,000.

Address: The Volunteer Review Sefton Park, Aigburth, L17 - 1867

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

It was probably the great Norman baron, Roger of Poitou, lord of all Lancashire south of the Ribble soon after Domesday Book was drawn up, who, about the end of the eleventh century, took the two townships of Toxteth and part of the township of Smithdown or Smeddon, and transformed them into a great deer park, dispossessing all their inhabitants, just as William the Conqueror did when he formed the much greater New Forest. This new park occupied an area of some 2,300 acres of undulating ground, and the wall which surrounded it was about seven miles long. Its low wooded promontories and little bays fronted the river for three miles from the modern Parliament Street to Otterspool, while it extended inland as far as Smithdown Lane.

Two streams ran through it. One of these streams to-day supplies the ornamental water in Sefton Park. Of this extensive and beautiful deer-chase, only Sefton and Prince's Parks remain to-day uncovered by streets and houses ; but a wide expanse of dreary streets still retains the name of Toxteth Park in rather ironical memory of its green glades.

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

Between Wavertree and Aigburth are numerous elegant villas and suburban residences. The village of AIGBURTH is beautifully situated three miles south of Liverpool, on the Mersey. In the neighbourhood is a handsome modern church in the Norman style of architecture, in which is a fine painted window representing "Christ healing the leper." There is also a Catholic chapel ; and a Catholic Magdalen asylum is shortly to be built.

Returning towards town we come into Toxteth-park, in which is situated St. Michael's church, a handsome Gothic erection; and the whole of the neighbourhood through which we pass is thickly studded with gentlemen's seats.

Till the visitor has made the tour of the environs, he will have no idea of the splendour of the private dwellings of the opulent Liverpool merchants, and of the taste which is displayed in the arrangement of the grounds.
