    It used to be the Lord Street Arcade.
    Something like the Wayfarer's Arcade in Southport.
    Designed by W Aubrey Thomas (Royal Liver, Tower Buildings, etc).
    It opened in 1901.
    In the 1980s the upper part was the Strawberry Dance Studios and they let me take some photos.
    I'll try and dig them out.

    Even I didn't recognise that building - sterling work Philip.

    It's sad to say that most of us walk around town with our heads down, myself included!

    I agree, the ones I've seen around town look tatty already. The ones on Duke St at least are semi-transparent, so they look faded and worn-out straight away.

    I look some French people to Liverpool in the summer and they were constantly looking up all the time and pointing to some building or other. We take it all for granted.

    I went with a party on one of Pat Neill's guided tours (Liverpool monuments chap) It was Herbert Tyson Smiths monuments around Liverpool city centre. We kept looking up and pointing and I lost count of the number of passers-by and shoppers who stopped by us, turned and looked up to see what we were looking at or asked us. Helped on no doubt by me looking up and shouting 'don't do it' now and again

    Three-year-old in horror plunge inside Liverpool's Primark storeApr 4 2008

    by Luke Traynor, Liverpool Echo


    A THREE-YEAR-OLD girl was today fighting for her life in hospital after a horror plunge in a city centre store.

    The youngster fell more than 100 feet inside Primark on Church Street in front of stunned shoppers.

    The girl was on the second floor when she toppled over into the gap between escalators and plunged three floors to the basement.

    She was rushed to the Royal Liverpool Hospital with her distraught family, where her conditon was described as critical.

    Emergency services said she had ‘torso-based’ injuries and was suffering from breathing difficulties.

    An announcement was made over the public address system and hundreds of shoppers were evacuated.
