Tower Buildings, Liverpool


I took this photo in the 1960s and the main building you can see is Tower Building, Water Street, which was a set of offices built on the site of the original Liverpool Tower, the ancient home of the Stanley family who would later become the Earls of Derby. With its Edwardian facade and towered elevations, it was designed in 1908 by W. Aubrey Thomas, the architect of the Royal Liver Buildings. It is one of the earliest steel-framed buildings in the UK. It is a Grade II listed building and has recently been converted into apartments for sale, rent and hotel hire. The design was to include a ground floor consisting of bars and restaurants but I don’t know if that was done.
