Photo 36: Queenstown-Landing the Mails
Liverpool is the most central point of landing or embarkation in the British Islands. It is situated about midway between London in the South, and Edinburgh and Glasgow in the North, at a distance of 190 to 220 miles, and communication with each of these important cities is maintained by services of luxuriously appointed express trains.
London is less than four hours distant. York and other historical cities in the North of England are within easy reach, and the venerable and most interesting city of Chester, with its ancient Cathedral, encircling walls, and numerous Roman antiquities, is only sixteen miles away.
The ancient towns of Shrewsbury, Warwick, Stratford-on-Avon, and Windsor all lie on the routes from Liverpool to London; as also Chatsworth, Haddon Hall, Newstead Abbey, Southwell Minster, Bedford (with the memorials of Bunyan), and St. Albans.
For American travelers making their first visit to the British Islands, and wishful to see some of the beauties of the Emerald Isle, a good plan is to land at Queenstown and proceed through Glengariff to the far-famed Lakes of Killarney, thence through Dublin or Belfast to Liverpool.
By the enterprise of the railway companies a series of new and high-class hotels has been provided at various points of interest in the southwest of Ireland, adding greatly to the attractions of that beautiful district.
