David Joy Liverpool Cowkeepers
The lives and times of the Liverpool cowkeepers is an intriquing part of local history. It is the story of the families who, in the mid 1800’s, left their farms in the Pennine dales and relocated to the cityof Liverpool in order to keep cows in their backyards and to sell fresh milk to a booming industrial population. David has talked to people who have their own memories of cows being kept in Liverpool. His talk is illustrated with photos from his own family collection and from the collections of others.
