Vol 169 (2020)

This year's volume offers a wealth and breadth of subjects and periods with transport, housing and civil politics, particularly in Liverpool, being the dominant themes. It also offers a contrast of places visited - from Speke Hall to a Cheshire residential street. In the aftermath of 2019's commemoration of the Peterloo Massacre there is a detailed look at the role the military played while the opening article explores hot air-ballooning in the late eighteenth century.

This volume is not available in digital form on our website at present but Liverpool University Press have currently made this particular volume available on free access until February 2024. Go to their website to find the articles listed below.
