1911 – Royal Liver Building, Liverpool

Architects: Walter Aubrey Thomas



The Royal Liver Building is one of the city of Liverpool’s most recognisable landmarks. It stands 90 metres high and has 13 floors. It is one of the earliest examples of multi-storey reinforced concrete construction. Carl Bernard Bartels designed the two Liver Bird sculptures that crown each clock tower. It is one of the so-called Three Graces of Liverpool – the others being the Cunard and Port of Liverpool Buildings.
