Port of Liverpool Building

Located at Pier Head, The Port of Liverpool Building is one of Liverpool’s Three Graces (the other two being the Royal Liver Building and Cunard Building).

The building was built between 1904 and 1907 for the Mersey Docks and Harbour Board (later renamed the Mersey Docks and Harbour Company), which was responsible for the Mersey lighthouses and aids to navigation.

For a while the optic from Great Orme’s Head Lighthouse was on display at the entrance to the building. It was later repatriated to Llandudno, where it is now on display at the Great Orme Summit Museum.

The company moved to Seaforth Dock in 2001. The company’s archive materials are stored at the nearby Merseyside Maritime Museum.
