Liverpool, on the shore of Onondaga Lake, was settled by John Danforth and his family due to the natural brine springs near the lakeshore. The population of salt boilers quickly grew. The Oswego Canal opened in 1828, and the village was incorporated in 1830. German immigrants brought willow weaving to the village in the mid-1850s, and by the 1890s, Liverpool willow products were being shipped all over the nation. In the 20th century, as more lucrative work became available and the automobile ruled, the basket weavers gave way to factory workers, nurses, teachers, and engineers. Around Liverpool takes you on a tour of the unique history of Liverpool, with images of its salt boilers, weavers, firefighters, schoolchildren, churchgoers, ice boaters--the people and places that made the community.
Among the first were members of an extended family familiar with willow weaving in their home country. John Fischer, an 1852 immigrant and salt boiler, noticed wild swamp willow growing along the Euclid Road (today's Morgan Road).

'There’s a growing awareness that for the good of their health, children need to be out and about more, with their friends, exploring the outdoor world in their own way.' - Nicola Butler, Director of the Free Play Network It is widely acknowledged that children today do not get outdoors often enough and there are serious concerns about children's activity levels and rising associated behavioural, mental and health problems. With such structured and technology-driven lives, it is easy for young children to stay indoors, play on computers and not socialise with other children in a healthy and active way. This book not only supports 'playing out' as an integral part of children’s natural growth and development, but also provides early years workers with a full programme of outdoor physical activities to promote physical, social and behavioural skills. This book is a guidebook to setting up an outdoor physical activity programme in any early years setting. The book focuses on how getting outdoors and taking part in physical activities will provide children with positive fun experiences to enhance their general learning and development. The programme can be adapted to suit any timescale - from a whole term to one or two days. Key features include showing practitioners: how to make the most of their outdoor area for all children step by step explanations to the outdoor activities how to engage participants (including parents) how to set up and plan activities ideas for group and individual assessment how to carry out risk assessments how an outdoors programme can change children's lives for the better.
