Liverpool (2) The Pier Head Area, the 'Three Graces' and lots more!

 North West England Index   *   Liverpool Index

The Pierhead area on the banks of the River Mersey is dominated by three ambitious buildings representing the great Imperial Edwardian optimism of the early 20th century.

The three magnificent pieces of architecture are known as the 'Three Graces' buildings, namely (i) The Royal Liver Building, (ii) The Cunard Building and (iii) The Mersey Docks and Harbour Board Offices.
