American Travellers in Liverpool

Liverpool University Press

This chapter focuses on the writer Nathaniel Hawthorne, who served as US consul in Liverpool in the 1850s. It includes excerpts from his memoirs and those of his son Julian. In addition to describing the workings of the consulate, Hawthorne particularly focused on differences between the two cultures. He records a number of city events as well as his experiences of residence within Liverpool and on the Wirral. Like Dickens, he derived his impressions from strolls around the city, but also left on record accounts of other American travellers there.
