Helicopters in Paradise Street?

A scheme in the 1950s and early 1960s saw city-centre helicopters as the way to promote urban mobility and inter-city travel. New technology would get this form of transport right to the heart of Liverpool. An article in the 2014 (volume 163) of Transactions of the Historic Society of Lancashire and Cheshire examines the plans for heliports. Liverpool’s City Engineer considered the possibility of such a heliport on top of a multi-storey car park or bus station. Why did the scheme disappear? Read the article in the Athenaeum Library or in Liverpool Central Public Library.
