The metropolisation of Liverpool

The city was bombed during the Second World War. After the war, rebuilding was carried out. The numerous reconstruction projects in the center of the city in the 1950s and 1960s were unpopular and swept away most of the pre-war buildings that had survived the bombing to make room for the city's renewal.


History

However, the city had been suffering since the 1950s with the loss of many employers. In the 1960s, Liverpool became a center of youth culture and the center of Beat music, which is associated with the Beatles and other Liverpool rock bands of the time.

In the 1950s and 1960s, many new council houses and flats were built. Unfortunately demolishing terraced houses and replacing them with high-rise flats broke up communities.

After the war, Liverpool struggled due to a decline in manufacturing at the Docks.

Culture

In ten years of existence and only seven years of recording, the Beatles recorded twelve original albums and composed nearly 200 songs, whose success in the history of the recording industry remains unequaled.

Half a century later, their music is still present and their image still representative of this landmark decade.

A famous group in the world

The group was formed in 1957 by John Lennon. It was composed of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and, the latest to join, Ringo Starr. They are considered the most popular and influential band in rock history.

The group was the standard bearer for the upheavals of society. The Beatles phenomenon was the first to achieve global reach in this new, smaller world.

THE BEATLES

GERRY & THE PACEMAKERS

"Walk on, walk on
With hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone"

This group was formed in 1959 and it frequently crosses paths with the Beatles. They enjoyed success with their first single "How Do You Do It?", which went to number one in the UK in April 1963. It was followed the same year by two more number ones, "I Like It" and "You'll Never Walk Alone", which subsequently became the anthem of Liverpool Football Club and other football clubs. Today, most of the members are dead but this group is still listened to a lot. We can therefore think that the attractiveness of Liverpool is due to their success, but not only!

CONCLUSION

Despite a complicated historical context, Liverpool still succeeded in the 1960s at being an attractive city. The music and groups like The Beatles or Gerry and the pacemakers can explain it, as its football team and its culture. However, there was a shadow in the picture. Indeed, the city had economic difficulties.
