Viewings on Friday afternoon (2-4pm) and extended viewing on Saturday (10am-2.30pm), and from 8.30am on both days. Bidding is in person, absentee, telephone or online.

Highlight: Liverpool Dock

The second day features maps, plans and specifications for Liverpool Docks, dating from the mid to late 1800s.

The original, hand-tinted documents, many in very good condition and some on cloth, date from a period when the docks became a gateway for mass emigration. Between 1830 and 1930, nine million people sailed from Liverpool, mostly bound for North America, Australia and New Zealand, to seek a better life in the new world.

Image shows: a 20ft long plan of a proposed viaduct, dated 1844, which forms one of the eight items in the lot. The collection provides a rich insight into the history and growth of the world famous Liverpool Docks in the mid to late 1800s.

Auctioneer, David Hunter comments:

“There is a lot of interest in Maritime ephemera and the collection provides an amazing insight into the growth and development of one of the world’s most famous docks at a critical time in its history. From the specification informing tenders for work to details of landownership and rateable values we’ve not seen the likes of this before”.
