United Kingdom: Port of Liverpool Building

On Thursday I got three postcards: one from the UK, one from Spain and one from India.

The card from the UK shows the Port of Liverpool Building. Liverpool is a city in North West England. In the course of the Industrial Revolution it became one of the World’s major trading centres and its port played an important role in the growth of the British Empire. It was also directly involved in the Atlantic slave trade. In 1912 it was the port of registry of the Titanic and later it was the home of the Beatles. The Maritime Mercantile City of Liverpool is since 2004 on the UNESCO World Heritage List and currently it is one of just two European sites on the List of World Heritage in Danger. In 2008 was Liverpool the European Capital of Culture.
