4 miles From an insignificant village, Birkenhead has, within the space of a few years, grown into an important and flourishing seaport town. According to the census of 1831, it contained at that time only 2599 inhabitants, which number had in 1851 increased to 24,175. The astonishing rapidity with which it progressed for some time has not however been maintained more recently. Extensive docks, of sufficient capacity to receive vessels of the largest class, have been constructed here, and a variety of public works undertaken ; and the town altogether promises to become in time a rival in importance to its gigantic neighbour on the opposite side of the Mersey.
