Weather chaos for Liverpool

December 31, 1906
Liverpool is suffering severely from the telegraphic and telephonic breakdown as a result of the heavy snowfalls. The eleven trunk telephone-wires between Liverpool and London are down, and there are no wires to Ireland except Belfast. All direct wires to the East Coast are down, while communication with all distant places is stopped-

Two motor mail parcel vans despatched from Manchester to Liverpool were found snowed up at Bold, near Warrington, this morning. The parcels were transferred to other vehicles and sent by train to Manchester.
