John Houlding elected Lord Mayor of Liverpool

November 9, 1897
The first quarterly meeting of the Liverpool City Council for the present municipal year was held in the Town Hall on Tuesday. Alderman John Houlding was elected to the office of Lord Mayor, there being no opposition, though a section of the members of the Council refrained from taking part in this portion of proceedings.

Other matters discussed included the appointment and duties of committees, and the bearing of the fair wage clause upon contracts for Corporation work.
