In 1874, the Tithebarn Street Outrage starkly brought to public attention the mobs of thugs who plagued Liverpool at a time when the city was one of the world's greatest and most prosperous seaports. Long hidden in the shadows of the fetid slums and alleyways, the gangs of Liverpool emerged to take centre stage. Most feared of all were the High Rip Gang, who announced themselves with the infamous Blackstone Street murder and went on to terrorise the city centre streets as they fought a bitter war with their sworn enemies, the Logwood Gang.
