Great Liverpudlians


“A fascinating journey through the city’s history and the people who made it”

Great Liverpudlians takes the reader on a wonderfully enjoyable journey through the city’s past, introducing us to an array of colourful characters, from kings and politicians, to philanthropists, poets, musicians, comedians, sportsmen and women, barrow girls and clergy.



This is a Liverpool history with a difference. Packed with information, this lively book is not only about events but about people – our Great Liverpudlians – and the part they each played in shaping the city. There are many familiar faces, of course, but they stand shoulder to shoulder with the ordinary men and women who have made Liverpool what it is. And as well as bringing the unsung heroes and their interesting lives to our attention, Daily Post columnist David Charters has also dug deep to unearth less well known details about those famous names we all thought we knew everything about.

All human life is here, and what is any great city if not the sum of its people?
