Liverpool – Mr Seel’s Garden

What is now Seel Street takes its name from Thomas Seel, who was a city merchant and former slave traders. Just to show how Liverpool has moved on over the centuries to share its wealth around equitably, note the tent to the left-hand side of the road with what I’m assuming is a homeless person trying to survive the cold months.

An information board giving more details about the area.

This is really nicely done, with a white asterisk marking the spot (towards the right-hand side) where I was standing. Unfortunately, all of these gardens are now under roads now, but it’s nice that a reminder of history has been made available.
