Hello. I am writing a stage play, which is set in and around Liverpool during the latter part of 1912. I am trying to get a feel for what life in general would have been like for a dock worker in the city around that time and would be grateful for any assistance. I'm looking for good books to read and good sources of information. I'm particularly keen to learn about the way the system for hiring dock labour on a casual basis worked and what wages were like compared to the cost of living at the time. Any help would be appreciated at this stage, and I will perhaps post specific questions as we go along. Many thanks. Tom Forum Index -> Liverpool and Merseyside History & Nostalgia
