The Water Street No. 14 Oriel Chambers, an amazingly forward looking building with huge areas of glass, built in 1864 (yes 1864!) to the design of the relatively unknown architect Peter Ellis. Pevsner describes it as "one of the most remarkable buildings of its date in Europe".


Oriel Chambers


Martins Bank by the architect Herbert J. Rowse in Water Street, French classical style built in 1927-1932

All that remains of the Exchange Railway Station is the original facade by H. Shelmerdine built in 1884-1886 ...


.. the station interior has been replaced with fancy offices!


A modern office block complex near Moorfields Station - I find its simple symmetry quite attractive.


The Carlisle Building ???


The shopping complex and walkways known as Liverpool One in the central shopping area of 'down-town' Liverpool.


some of the many 'faces' of Liverpool One!


The pub The Philharmonic Hotel (also marked as the Philharmonic Dining Rooms) was built in 1898-1900 by Walter Thomas with steep gables and a double-curved balcony and iron gates by H. Blomfield Bare.


The Philharmonic Hall in Hope Street dates from 1937-1939 by the architect Rowse.


Hope Place - some houses have late Georgian doorways


The original art college? built in~1825 as the Liverpool Mechanics' School of Art which became known as The Liverpool Mechanics Institution. It has been completely rebuilt behind the facade you see and was re-opened as the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (LIPA) under the patronage of Sir Paul McCartney and Mark Featherstone-Witty


Street Sculpture in Hope Street


The Gustaf Adolfs Kyrka (Swedish Seaman's Church) in Park Lane. Built in 1883-1884 by W. D. Caroe. An interesting unsymmetrical building.
