    Default Liver Buildings

    The Liver buildings, situated on the Pier Head of Liverpool, what a great site and attraction. Designed by Walter Aubrey Thomas - Opened in 1911, by Lord Sheffield.


    ADVERTISING




    I attach a couple of photos which you may or may not have seen and just show you how big the clock face really is in reality. It shows, the then Directors having a final Banquet on the clock face before it was erected. These clock faces are in fact BIGGER than Big Ben, not alot of people know that.

    The Liver Birds are a cross between an eagle and a cormorant (the bird of good luck to sailors).

    Great pics and info Liver_Piero, I haven't seen that one with the "hand" before.
    Looking forward to seeing more AND the Goree.
    I know quite a few would be very interested in the Williamson Tunnels stuff you have also.

    Not wishing to be pedantic, but 'Big Ben' is a bell not a clock face
