Leeds-Liverpool Canal
Leeds-Liverpool Canal
Leeds-Liverpool canal from Boundary Road bridge (dated 1848) showing the cast iron Athol Street Bridge. With the growth of Liverpool in the late 18th and early 19th century, the development of Vauxhall as an industrial area was inevitable with the building of the canal, construction of new docks and the coming of the railways, the low lying strip of land close to the river was the natural location for industry and its work-force. By the late 1840s Vauxhall was already industrialised - its character in manufacturing consisting of iron foundries, soap, alkali, chemicals and other manufactories drawing a dense population of labouring people, supported to a considerable extent by abundant local employment.
