From the publisher:
Now for the first time in paperback, this is a unique and magnificent collection of photographs of Liverpool Football Club from the very early days until 1992, freshly selected from thousands of images in the Daily Mirror's extensive archive. These superb photos, many of them previously unpublished, document the rise of the most successful football club in the English game. The early days and the championship-winning sides of the early 1900s, the 'untouchables' of the '20s, the coming of the 'messiah' Bill Shankly after the lean years of the 1930s, '40s and '50s, the triumphs of the '60s '70s and '80s, the tragedies of Heysel and Hillsborough - it's all here.
This book will bring to life the periods, the personalities and the human stories.
