This music takes Liverpool as its inspiration. The city grew rapidly during the 19th Century when it became one of the principal ports for importing cotton and 8 new docks were opened between 1815 and 1835. A railway was opened in 1825 and this confirmed Liverpool's importance as a trading centre. People from all around the world came to Liverpool, as sailors, passengers, slaves, traders and workers. Sheet music like this was bought by the middle classes who entertained themselves at home by playing musical instruments, typically the piano.
