Obviously the history of the Square is huge, as you might tell from this blog, and some parts of are obvious in terms of the building, the general influence and a few key figures ( Chavasse, Newlands, Booth, Gladstone) but what else to focus on, as I'll only have an hour or so. So I thought I'd turn to my trusty readership...
Are there any occupants of the Square you'd like me to talk about, or any areas to focus on. The influence on Medicine is one link, slavery is another ( not just American civil war but plantations and trade with India and China), the interiors of the houses, the Liverpool to Manchester Railway, deaths ( and murders) in the square, St Catherine's Church, artists patronage ( Whistler, Stubbs etc), the later University years, politics, life below stairs, the layout of the houses.
I thought I'd throw open a call to see if there's any particular aspect those reading the blog might like to hear more about. Thoughts?
Or, as a new challenge to myself, I could randomly pick a few names of occupant families and let you lot pick one for me to talk about?
