Nearly 750 000 people and two football teams live in Liverpool, making it the third largest city and second largest port in England — and its football capital. It exports entertainers with talent and an accent that is pure Dublin, has two estates (Speke and Kirby) infamous in our short history of town planning, and was the home of Barlow before he reneged to Bristol. As the snow recedes, Liverpool lies third in the League and Everton fifth — probably the most important fact about the place to most of its male population. With Glasgow it shares a love/hate relationship on the battle of the Boyne that is thankfully receding, and an historical involvement with the slave trade and eighteenth century commerce, putting it midway between Glasgow and Bristol. Primarily a port and commercial centre, the large insurance offices, docks and light industry provide employment for its working population of 390 000.
