    Here is the Georges Dock drained in 1901. Work would soon start on the Royal Liver Buldings.

    Not your everyday images that you usually find of that area . Thanks for posting.

    I wonder if any of the original substantial dock wall was incorporated into the cellars of the new Buildings.

    As you may see CP, i'm not into the everyday images that are in every book so seek out the unusual shots which are largely unseen which are sometimes LRO, sometimes out of print books and sometimes from private collectors who email me them. Glad you are liking them. The dock walls are certainly part of the other two buildings so I suspect so as it'd be a great waste not to have used what were already there, given as you say they were substantially built.

    Great pics Ged.

    You can just make out Albion House in the top right hand corner on the 1st photo.

    Do you have any photos of the inside?
