This is a view of the town from somewhere on the high ground in the vicinity of Duke Street. On the right hand side of the picture is St Peter's Church next to the Blue Coat School. To the left is the roof of Liverpool's second Town Hall and the towers of the Castle. The masts of ships can be seen in the newly opened dock. Hanover Street, at that time a sandy lane with hedges, is in the foreground.
