    This was another building by the architect of the Royal Liver Building.
    W Aubrey Thomas.
    The address is 81-89 Lord Street.
    It was built in 1901 as the Lord Street Arcade.
    Something like the Wayfarer's Arcade in Southport with shops on two levels on either side and a glass and cast-iron roof down the centre.
    I don't know who actually owned it.
    That sort of information rarely becomes public unless, like buildings such as the Royal Liver Building, they were named after their owners.
