    Saturday 1st October..


    Cunard building government offices..
    This room was a busy office area on Wed 28th October when occupied by the government..
    The photo was taken on Thursday 29th October..
    the day after after the government people vacated the Cunard building after years of using the Cunard building...

    This area had its own staff, cleaners etc...
    the normal Cunard building staff were not allowed in this area...ever..
    the doors were manned by security staff as a lot of top secret stuff was held in safety rooms in this area..

    This is a one off photo..
    Nobody has ever been allowed to take photos in this area..
    and nobody will be allowed to again.. that's what I'm told...


    Click to view the photo large.. note the gold painted american eagles..
    they were painted gold to look nice as this area was once a 1st class passenger waiting area...
    passengers would wait here before departures and on arrivals to Liverpool to collect their luggage..

    Across the corridor from this 1st class waiting area was the 2nd class waiting area..
    That room is similar... no gold painted american eagles I'm afraid for the 2nd class..
    Your normal white ones will have to do for them..

    I remember as a kid wandering around the Cunard building...when my Dad was 'away at sea' my Mum used to have to go to collect our 'weekly allotment'.........(think the allotment office was in the basement) but I was curious and wanted to nose upstairs! Not sure it was the office in your pic Gerard as it was a long time ago!!
