Happy BiCentenary Liverpool

Liverpool is our town. And yesterday, on Sunday November 7th 2010 Liverpool saw its 200th year since Governor Macquarie rowed up the river  ( Georges River ) to declare the location as "Fit for the Purpose" for a new town named Liverpool. The Governor was accompanied by local settler Thomas Moore ( Moorebank.. Moore Theological College) and his Surgeon Dr William Redfern ( Redfern, Redfern Oval - home of the South Sydney Rabbitohs).

Liverpool is the fourth oldest town in Australia, after Sydney, Parramatta and Hobart.

Happy Birthday Liverpool.
