At the start of this project, a team of archive researchers delved into newspaper archives to uncover quirky stories from Toxteth’s past. Using both digital and micro-film archives, the team created a database of stories that appeared in the Liverpool Daily Post and Liverpool Echo that mentioned the word ‘Toxteth’. Our research will focus on newspapers published between the years 1850 and 1900. These stories were logged on paper and are filed at Toxteth TV, and then re-logged onto a database using Excel so that it becomes easier to access and to search.
