Liverpool in a City Living
By Ged Fagan

This book concentrates on the tenement blocks that were so prevalent in Liverpool from the 1930s onwards, particularly those on the fringe of the city centre itself. Many thousands of families were moved from slum ridden courts and terraced cellar properties to these luxurious new Art Deco apartments complete with hot and cold running water, Electricity and Gas, indoor toilet/bathroom and verandas.  A factual and pictorial record of the Gerard Gardens and surrounding area and its close proximity to the grandeur of the neo classical buildings of William Brown Street.
