  In 1905, at the end of her seventh century as a chartered borough, Liverpool finds herself amongst the three or four greatest ports of the world. She conducts one-third of the export trade, and one-fourth of the import trade, of the United Kingdom. She owns one-third of the total shipping of the kingdom, and one-seventh of the total registered shipping of the world. Liverpool ships are, on the average, of larger size than those of any other British port. But even taking that into account, these facts mean that of every ten ships that go to and fro on all the seas of all the world, one hails from Liverpool. In the midst of a fiercer competition than she has hitherto known, the port proclaims her confidence in the future by erecting for the new century a huge domed dock office at the gateway of the town, and a stately pillared cotton exchange near by ; two such palaces of trade as fifty years ago could scarcely have been dreamed of.
