    Paid a visit to Victoria Hall today to see Mr Hardman`s photo exhibition.
    First time I`ve been in there was pleasantly surprised by the decor.

    Hi gregs dad

    Great photographs of Victoria Hall at the University of Liverpool, gregs dad. I have never been in there, only seen the building from the outside. When I saw your photographs though it reminded me of the Manchester Museum, not surprisingly because the same architect was responsible for both: Alfred Waterhouse. The dates for Victoria Hall by Waterhouse are 1889-1892 (same year my grandad was born, 1892 that is) while the Manchester museum building was opened to the public in 1890. Waterhouse also designed Manchester's Town Hall and the Natural History Museum in London.

    All the best

    Just to add, in Liverpool, he also did the Prudential Building in Dale Street and the North Western Hotel opposite St George's Hall. Due to his love of red bricks and tiles, he got the nickname, Waterhouse Slaughterhouse. I'm not sure if he didn't also do the Royal Infirmary - can't quite remember.

    Two notes of trivia:

    It is from this building that the term 'Red Brick University' was coined.


    The food in the cafe is bloody lovely.
