The golden age of Liverpool began in the 1770s, the modern golden age of Kobe a century later. Kobe surpassed Liverpool in population only during the 1930s, when the population of Liverpool reached a maximum. Liverpool mustered forty-five times the population of Kobe in 1870 (493,000 to 11,000) but only fourfold that population in 1890 (630,000 to 137,000). Liverpool became the second city of the UK by 1801 but Kobe never rose above the status of the sixth largest city in Japan, although Hyogo Prefecture did exceed Osaka Prefecture in population down to the year 1904.

Builders of the Japanese style of wooden ship were consequently well established.

London extended its tentacles beyond the suburbs of the metropolis to embrace the whole realm by means of the provincial editions of its daily papers, which were published from 1900 onwards. 42 It provided the Belgian poet, Emile Verhaeren, with the prototype for his vision of ‘the tentacular cities’ (1895) of the modern age.
