“The inhabitants of Birkenhead were so few in number that they all knew each other, and it was the custom for the passengers by the steamer to walk round and shake hands with one another each morning”Written by Harriet salt nee Harrison for her family who had expressed interest in her early days in Birkenhead. At this time, the 1820s, there were no houses in Birkenhead until her father Joseph Harrison built four cottages in Church Street and One cottage on the water front. Harriet says “It would take a poet’s gift to describe the placid beauty of the Mersey in the days of old”
