  The thing about shops way back when is that even up to the 1950s and 60s they weren't self-service and they weren't big sheds. In fact, the whole shopping system was completely different then.

For a start, all the shops were small and all had a counter inside behind which were the staff and the goods and each kind of shop only sold its own type of product. So, the butcher sold meat, the bakery sold bread, cakes, pies and pasties, the green grocer sold fruit and vegetables and the 'shop' sold all the tinned and packet stuff except there weren't that many tins and packets. It was nearly all loose.

Every area had its own shops and mine was Park Road and the system went like this:-
they opened Monday to Saturday, 9 am to 1 pm and 2.30 pm to 5.30 pm, Wednesday was half day closing in the afternoon and no openings on Sundays.
Your Mother, or most likely you, went for the rations or the messages with a shopping bag (for life) everyday.
There weren't any fridges or freezers so you mostly bought what you needed for that day and if you forgot something and the shops were closed then you went to the 'corner shops' which were literally on most corners of the streets where you lived and each sort of specialised in what they sold and charged you more than the main shops because they stayed open until 10 pm. Where I lived there were 6 corner shops within 100 yards (90 odd metres).

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

In the earlier part of the period the houses which faced upon the old streets were of infinite variety of size and form, for rich and poor lived together, and the wealthiest merchants did not disdain to live above their cellar warehouses, the yawning openings to which formed a serious danger to foot passengers. Houses of this type may still be seen in Duke Street and Hanover Street, but in the eighteenth century merchants dwelt also in Water Street, Oldhall Street, and Lord Street. Towards the end of the century, however, they began to desert the old houses, and to betake themselves to residences further afield. Rodney Street was well built up by the end of the eighteenth century, Mr. John Gladstone being established in his fine house before 1798.

A large new circular reading room was added by the Town Council, and named in honour of Sir James Picton, and in 1873 Mr. A. B. Walker completed the group of buildings by presenting to the city a spacious gallery of art. The Walker Art Gallery was the first UK public art gallery.

  The church was built in 186869 and designed by G. E. Street. It was paid for by Robert Horsfall, a local stockbroker and Anglo-Catholic.

The church became "the centre of Anglo-Catholicism in 19th-century Liverpool". In 192426 the Jesus Chapel, designed by Hubert B. Adderley, was added to the north of the church.

Antioch, in Turkey, was considered to be 'the cradle of Christianity'.

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

Another aspect of the work of the Town Council begun early in this period deserves also to rank high among the pioneering activities of the Liverpool municipality ; the more interesting because it shows that the new spirit which was increasingly mastering the Council was not content with providing merely for the physical and material needs of the community. This was the foundation, in 1852, of the Liverpool Public Library, one of the earliest of such institutions in the country, and the organisation, in close association with it, of the Public Museum.

The provision of free public libraries was first suggested as a proper object of public expenditure by a Liverpool man, William Ewart, who, in 1850, succeeded in passing through Parliament the Public Libraries Act. But the need of such an institution had already been urged in Liverpool before that act was passed, and a subscription had been raised for the purpose and transferred to the Council, which, in 1852, opened a temporary library in Duke Street. In 1851 the thirteenth Earl of Derby bequeathed to the city his fine collection of natural history specimens. Stimulated by this gift the Council obtained a special act empowering them to establish not merely a library, but a ' Public Library, Museum and Art Gallery ' ; thus from the first the three kindred institutions were closely linked together. The generosity of Sir William Brown provided funds for the erection of a fine library and museum building in Shaw's Brow, now appropriately re-named William Brown Street, and to these beginnings new additions were quickly made.

In 1857 Mr. Joseph Mayer presented to the city his great collection of objects of historic and archaeological interest, which formed an invaluable supplement to the Derby collections. Later, a large new circular reading room was added by the Town Council, and named in honour of Sir James Picton, who had done good service to the cause of learning in the city.
