Title: After the War Was Over: The Pearsons of ...
Publisher: Trans Pennine Publishing, UK
Publication Date: 2009
Book Condition: Brand new 8 x 11 paperback.
200 pages, 200 illustrations. In over 200 large format images, this book uses hitherto classified photographs of outstanding quality to present a view of the 'secret' goings-on around Wavertree and Edge Hill. Here, in bombed-out factories and on waste ground around Smithdown Lane, Overbury Street, Crown Street, Queensland Road and Falkner Street, a vast fleet of military vehicles were erected in great secrecy. Assembling crated vehicles sent across the Atlantic in the convoys, an army of engineers aided by old men, young boys and women, assembled a vast fleet of military might, initially from Canada and then the USA. This remarkable book tells the forgotten story, of how Pearson's of Shaw Street coped with this vital work, and how they were then reorganised for the peace times that followed. 36775 A.
