Pictorial History Liverpool and District by Carol Liston celebrates 200 years of settlement since Governor Macquarie's declaration of Liverpool as a town in 1810. Land grants were given to the NSW Corp members and free settlers along the George's River which gave people access by boat to Botany Bay. Settlement expanded with the building of the railway and outlying villages began appearing in the mid 19th century. The army camps at Holsworthy and Ingelburn further expanded settlement. The City of Liverpool has undergone massive growth in recent years. New residents of the area may be unaware of the city's history as an important rural and industrial centre. Older residents may find once familiar places peering at them from the pages of this book and relive memories of past days in a very different place.
