Scotland Road "The Old Neighbourhood"
by Terry Cooke

It had a reputation for having "a pub on every corner". But it was so much more than that. Terry's book takes a trip down the old Scotland Road. Himself a 'Scottie Roader', Terry says Scotland Road was slaughtered. The pubs, schools, churches, shops, cinemas and the cosy little back to back houses in the cobbled streets were ruthlessly bulldozed to heaps of rubble. He says that Scotland Road was more a way of life than a working class area.
Price: £8.50

The Life and Times of Kitty Wilkinson
by Mike Kelly

This is the story of a remarkable woman who fought poverty and adversity to become a legend in her time.

Living in a poor part of Liverpool plagued by disease particularly cholera, she disregarded her own safety to care for the sick and dying, to take in homeless children and to teach that cleanliness was the main weapon against disease, turning her own home into a wash-house for her neighbours' benefit.

Kitty was honoured by the city of Liverpool and by Queen Victoria, and in Liverpool Cathedral there is a window depicting this remarkable woman.
