The subjects of these very different views of Liverpool and Manchester (in the centre) were probably specified to Wyld by his patrons, as they accord closely with Victoria’s journal entries for the couple’s visit to the two cities in October 1851. In Liverpool she and Albert particularly admired St George’s Hall, a newly built concert venue and court building.
