American Travellers in Liverpool

David Seed


Liverpool was one of the first consulates to be established by the USA. It was also the first port of call for most American travellers throughout the nineteenth century. Many of these visitors left accounts of their experiences in the city. Some are detailed, like Herman Melville’s description of the docks; others give briefer impressions. These selections demonstrate the rich variety of cultural contacts between Britain and the USA throughout the nineteenth century.
