History of Liverpool
Liverpool was slow to develop until the early 18th century when the first slave ships began to use the city bringing growth and prosperity. This led to the development of the docks and by the beginning of the following century 40% of world trade passed through Liverpool generating income and prompting a big expansion of the population. During this period Liverpool's wealth outstripped that of London and some of the city's grandest buildings were constructed to demonstrate its status.
At the beginning of the 20th century Liverpool was attracting immigrants from across Europe leading to a building boom but the Great Depression of the 1930s hit the city particularly hard. During World War 2, bombing raids killed around 2,500 people and caused extensive damage to residential and commercial property.
The post-war reconstruction of the city followed the pattern of urban renewal witnessed in many UK cities during this period. At the same time the city became the focus of worldwide attention due to the Merseybeat phenomena. However, a decline in shipping saw the docks slip into decline along with other traditional industries and during the 1970s and 1980s Liverpool became synonymous with mass unemployment.
By the end of the 20th century Liverpool's fortunes had begun to turn around and its economy was growing faster than many comparable cities. The beginning of the current century saw large commercial property developments transforming the city centre and tourism and leisure becoming ever more important to Liverpool's economy. Today it is a thriving business and heritage centre where culture and commerce go hand in hand.
Liverpool has an estimated population of around 450,000. The overwhelming majority is from the white ethnic group. However, the city is home a diverse range of cultures including established West Indian and Chinese communities. In common with other large urban areas, Liverpool has a higher than average population of young adults.
After decades of decline Liverpool's economy is now one of the largest in the UK. While shipping remains important, today's economy is dominated by the service sector with banking, finance and insurance all having a strong presence in the city. There is also a growing knowledge economy in Liverpool. Tourism and leisure are other significant factors in the local economy. This has led to a strong demand for office and retail space in the city, which in turn has led to a number of high profile commercial property developments.
