Joseph Sharples was formerly a Curator at the Walker Art Gallery, where he organised a major exhibition on Charles Reilly and the Liverpool School of Architecture in 1996-7. He is now carrying out research at the University of Liverpool into the architectural activities of Liverpool merchants from the 18th to the early 20th century. For the past three years he has been working on the forthcoming Pevsner Architectural Guide to Liverpool, to be published in May of this year. He will speak to us about the process of researching and writing this long-awaited new guidebook to the city's buildings.
