The Old Central Technical School...


..... Later an annex to the Liverpool Polytechnic (Where I studied for my HNC in Electrical Engineering as a Post Office Apprentice so many years ago) stands at the corner of Byrom Street and William Brown Street in Liverpool. It now serves a purpose as offices for National Museums, Liverpool.

It was designed by E. W. Mountford in 1896 after he had won a competition to be the architect, he also designed the Old Bailey in London. It was opened in 1901

I love these buildings, nothing understated about Victorian architecture!
Les Auld: So do I Bill, there is so much detail there if you look, thanks for the comment.
Another impressive building, funny to see the airport (?) tower there !
Les Auld: The tower is ST. Johns Beacon Zeb, and it is actually the chimney from the market below.

This looks like a bastion of civic pride Les

Great shot of this architectural gem Les, and good memories for you I hope.

You rarely have any people in these pictures, so I think you must be up and about very early.

You've captured astonishing detail here, as usual, and made the building looks spectacularly sturdy - they certainly don't make them like this any more
Les Auld: Taken late afternoon Ellie, just had to have a bit of patience. Appreciate the comment, thanks.
