photoblog image Georges Dock Building

Georges Dock Building


Perhaps one of my favourite buildings at Liverpool's Pier Head, Georges Dock building on the Strand is both the headquarters of the Mersey Tunnel company and the ventilation shaft for the original Mersey Tunnel. Opened in 1934, the architect, Herbert J. Rowse, incorporated fine Art Deco detail into a clean square building. The green shelter in front of the building is one of the original ticket booths. The tunnel comapny run guided tours of the building and ventilation shafts but so far I have always seemed to have missed them.

On the right hand side can be seen the Port of Liverpool building.

On another subject I have just found out that yesterday's image of the DUKW has been selected as picture of the day in the Liverpool Echo on Saturday.
