Description

Port of Liverpool, United Kingdom , was founded in 1715.


Comments / picturesLiverpool\'s first dock was the world\'s first enclosed commercial dock, the Old Dock, built in 1715. The Lyver Pool, a tidal inlet in the narrows of the estuary, which is now largely under the Liverpool One shopping centre, was converted into the enclosed dock. Further docks were added and eventually all were interconnected by lock gates, extending 7.5 miles (12.1 km) along the Liverpool bank of the River Mersey. From 1830 onwards, most of the building stone was granite from Kirkmabreck near Creetown, Scotland.

One of the most famous elephant arriving to Liverpool Port in 1884 was the white elephant Toug Toulog brought to the US for Barnum & Bailey Circus in USA.
