(p.219) Chapter 10 Conclusion: Trading in Interesting Times
Trade and Traders in Mid-Victorian Liverpool
Liverpool University Press

This chapter addresses the extent to which different trades were able both to respond to changing circumstances, and to drive that change in their own interests, and also emphasises the role of Liverpool's traders in the mercantile globalisation of the mid-nineteenth century. It then evaluates their successes and failures. The traders found evolutionary solutions to the problems of revolutionary times, and also emerged with a much higher national and global profile. It has been noted that religion affected Liverpool's politics and the lives of many traders. Moreover, the significance of Liverpool steamships in the Mediterranean trades depended on an émigré merchant community that had brought knowledge of the Mediterranean to Liverpool, and on the shipowning firms which brought Liverpool to the Mediterranean.
