When Steven Horton's Street Names of the City of Liverpool was released in 2002 it was a best seller. Now he has revised and updated this book making it bigger and better, taking into account the changes in the city since then as well as including many more streets. The origins of 1,500 street names are explained, grouped into categories such as royalty, politicians and maritime. This well researched book contains the answers as to why you will find a Fazakerley Street in the city centre and a Croxteth Drive in the south of the city. It will also tell you why there are Russian themed streets in Stoneycroft and streets named after Nicaraguan towns in Toxteth. You can also find out who died before he was due to move into a street being named after him and why Battenberg Street isn't named after a cake. This book, written in a personable easy to read style, will be thoroughly enjoyed by all.
