Liverpool, landmarks, liverpool-the-lucania-9.8x8.7-300
Location: Liverpool

Category: landmarks

Address: The Lucania Pier Head, Centre-Town, L.1 - 1907

  As described in "Liverpool Artist - J. Hamilton Hay"

RMS Lucania was a British ocean liner built by Fairfield Shipbuilding and Engineering Company of Govan, Scotland, for Cunard and launched on Thursday, 2 February 1893.

Identical to her sister ship RMS Campania, RMS Lucania was the joint largest passenger liner afloat when she entered service in 1893. On her second voyage, she took the prestigious Blue Riband from her sister ship to become the fastest passenger liner afloat, a record she kept until 1898.

Her last voyage was on July 7th 1909, after which she was laid up at the Huskisson Dock in Liverpool. Then, on the evening of August 14th, 1909, she was badly damaged by a fire, and partially sank at her berth. Five days later she was sold for scrap.

Address: Lyceum Bold Street, Centre-Town, L.1 - 1958

  As described in "Bygone Liverpool" in the year 1913.

THIS handsome classical building, which was erected on the site of a timber-yard, was commenced in 1800 and completed in 1803. It was built from the design of T. Harrison, of Chester, and cost £11,000. It contains under one roof a news room, library, and of late years a club ; the library and news room are distinct institutions, with different proprietors and committees of management. The history of the library dates back to 1757, with the publication of the Monthly Review. Previous to the appearance of this magazine, a few gentlemen met at the house of a Mr. Everard for the discussion of literary matters, and they agreed to take the magazine and circulate it among the members of the little circle. Gradually other books were added, and on November 17, 1758, the coterie was able to issue its first catalogue of 450 volumes.

Address: Liverpool Manchester Ship Canal , Centre-Town, L.1 - 2006

  In 1720 the river Douglas was made navigable from Wigan to the Ribble, thus enabling coals to be brought by water to Liverpool more cheaply than was possible by land. Two years later an act was passed for deepening the Mersey and Irwell beyond Warrington, so as to enable barges to go to Manchester, and in the following years the deepening of the Weaver as far as Nantwich made Cheshire salt vastly cheaper and more abundant.
