  1. Sorry to disappoint all of you. School for Deaf. Liverpool was not the first in world.

    Paris Germany Holland Sweden Edinburgh London(1792) Birmingham Manchester(1823) Liverpool(1825). FACT

  2. 1878 The city’s first professional football club Everton was formed – as St.Domingo FC. Changes it’s name a year later to Everton. Founder members of the Football League 1888. I would have thought that is a first for the City whether people are interested in sport or not.

    Fascinating society and interesting read I think I may join.

    Out of interest my Father and Uncle own a company called S.Barber & Co Ltd (Printers) and we are 100 years old this year. I am the 5th generation to be employed and I am almost certain we are the oldest established printers in Liverpool. It is hard going at present but we are still there. Started off in Tempest Hey, then South John Street, then Kitchen Street, then Lipton Close in Bootle (fire destroyed premises in July 2012), now in Vauxhall Road.

  3. Wifes Uncle served apprenticeship with family firm of Bolton’s Bookbinder Liverpool at the turn of century anybody know anything about them?

  4. This is brilliant! Wow! Who knew?
    It would be even better if you were able to record any 1st’s for Liverpool in the past 10 years and if you had a link for me and others to share this to Facebook and other social net works.
    I noticed a couple of typo’s but the only one I can remember is on the 1933 line ‘Spekes’.
    Anyway, well done and keep it up!
