photoblog image George's Dock Building

George's Dock Building


Behind the Port of Liverpool building at the Pier Head in Liverpool is the George's Dock Building.  The building was opened in 1934 and is the headquarters of the Mersey Tunnel company, the tower that projects upwards also forms the main ventilation shaft for the Mersey Tunnel on the Liverpool side. There are some excellent art deco carvings around the building and it forms an impressive adjunct to the Three Graces that line the front of the Pier Head.

Contrasts nicely with the stormy sky.
Les Auld: Thanks Martin, appreciate the comment.
Impressive against this sky, very dramatic !
Les Auld: It is an impressive building, not many windows either.

The tower part of the building seems to have moved, while the rest of the building up front seems unshaken. Is it some kind of processing you have done?

I like the contrast with the skies.
Les Auld: Well spotted Loius, a bit of HDR gone wrong I'm afraid.
Nice angle and some interesting processing going on by the look of it.
Les Auld: HDR gone a bit wrong Bill, but it was late at night and I never noticed. Once posted I didn't feel like taking it down again. Thanks for the comment though.
