Liverpudlian fashion model Erica Correa flew out from the U.K. to Los Angeles in order to update her model portfolio with some California flavor, so her agency asked me to do my thing. Along the way I learned a thing or two about Liverpool's history as an international trading port city, particular with Scandanavian countries...
According to Wikipedia, "The word 'scouse' is a shortened form of 'lobscouse', the origin of which is uncertain. It is related to the Norwegian 'lapskaus', Swedish 'lapskojs', and Danish 'labskovs', as well as the Low German 'labskaus', and refers to a stew of the same name commonly eaten by sailors. In the 19th century, poorer people in Liverpool, Birkenhead, Bootle and Wallasey commonly ate scouse as it was a cheap dish, and familiar to the families of seafarers. Outsiders tended to call these people 'Scousers'."
