From Wheel House to Counting House

Gordon Jackson

Liverpool University Press

Gordon Jackson’s essay on Grimsby demonstrates how the intertwining of commercial, maritime and civic interests shaped the development of the port over the past two centuries. Tracing the rise, fall, rise, fall and rise of the port of Great Grimsby since 1796, Jackson argues that all ports are only eligible in relation to the ebb and flow of the international economy at specific moments in time.
