Caption for Liverpool, The Waterloo Column And Commutation Row 1895

The Waterloo Column, Liverpool's version of Nelson's Column in London, dominates this photograph. On it stands Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington, British general, statesman and Prime Minister. He is commemorated here as the victorious leader of the British forces in the Peninsular War 1808-14, which was caused by Napoleon's invasion of Portugal and Spain. The war finally ended in 1814 with Napoleon's abdication. Wellington's final victory against Napoleon was at Waterloo in 1815. The column stands 132ft high, and the Duke's statue is a further 15ft. It is said that the statue was forged using the metal from cannon captured at the battle of Waterloo. To the right of the column in the background is Commutation Row, which was built and named to celebrate the repeal of the window tax. Sad to say, it is now all cleared away for a modern building.

Living In Kensington In The 1950's

I lived in a flat at 185a Kensington. I recall watching the Lodges marching along the road on the 12th July. We would walk down Brunswick Road into town. At Xmas, we would go to the grotto at TJ Hughes, I remember being very impressed with the Dancing Waterfalls one year. It was always a treat to walk ...Read full memory

A memory of Liverpool by Sue Bence

Empress Of England

Hi, I too emigrated to Canada but in about 1954 when I was nearly three. We had to come back the following year as my father was ill, and I think it must have been on the return journey that I remember the rocking horse too! Thanks for reminding me of this and of the portholes in the ship. Those two things stuck in my mind.
