The Walker on William Brown Street
It is good to be back to be able to continue my walk up William Brown Street in Liverpool. Just after the Picton Reading Room is the Walker Art Gallery, the last of the Victorian Buildings celebrating the Arts and Learning, the other two being the Museum and the Picton.
Built in 1873 it was enlarged in 1882 by Cornelius Sherlock and then again in 1931 by Sir Arnold Thornley. It now houses a fine collection of paintings and statues, forming one of the great art colelctions of the country.
In the middle distance may also be seen the County Sessions House.
