As early as the 1840s Liverpool had become an important temporary base for visiting reformers from the USA, figures like Ralph Waldo Emerson who lectured in the local workmen’s institutes. The cause of abolition was represented by Louisa May Alcott, feted after the publication of Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Liverpool saw socialist and feminist campaigners delivering addresses right to the end of the century.
