Can anyone confirm what I've just read on BK, that Walton was outside of Liverpool when Goodison was built, only becoming part of the city in 1895? If so doesn't that make a nonsense of the boundary argument and affect KEIOC's credibility (ie if they'd been around then they'd have self evidently been anti-Goodison). It's only one letter putting that forward as fact, be very interested to know if it's true.
Edit...Found confirmation myself...
At the end of the century, however, the city awoke to the danger of allowing the wealthy residential suburbs which derived their prosperity from the city to escape from their share of the costs of government. In 1895 the township of Walton, a second large section of the extensive township of West Derby, the township of Wavertree, and the remaining southern half of the township of Toxteth, were added to the city.
