Chapter Summary

In October 1958, the author joined the Department of Economics at the University of Liverpool. The city's expansion to become Britain's second port after London had a number of secondary consequences. These included the encouragement of shipbuilding and the provision of ship-repairing facilities. But there was only a limited processing of imported raw materials; Lever Brothers' soap and margarine production was something of an exception. The growth of trade and shipping, and the need to cater for their every requirement, led to the emergence of wealthy elite. Sheila Marriner also played a significant role in the research for Blue Funnel, but this was not acknowledged in the publication. None of the appointments to Economic History was of a specialist nature, which meant that all staff contributed to the basic courses and were also expected to provide options in their own areas of expertise.

Keywords: economic history; London; margarine production; University of Liverpool
