Royal Liver Building
THE ROYAL LIVER BUILDING
The towering strength of the Royal Liver Building is seen to the best advantage on approaching the Prince`s Landing Stage by water. To the voyages visiting this country for the first time, it must create a lasting impression on their minds, because it is one of the few commercial buildings in the world that contains two flanking towers. They fill the skyline of Merseyside, and are truly emblematic of this great Seaport.On a night in July, 1850, nine working men met at the Liver inn, St. Anne Street, Liverpool, to found a burial club. They knew but too well how grievous, sometimes ruinous, were the financial burdens sickness and death brought frequently to families like their own, of small resources and so the Liverpool Lyver Burial Society was born later changing its name to Royal Liver Friendly Society.At its Annual Meeting in 1907, in Dublin, Royal Liver decided to build the home it now occupies in Liverpool. It took 3 years to complete.Here are some of the details:-Length 301 feetWidth 177 feetHeight 167 feet (Main roof to ground)Height 322 feet (Liver birds to ground)Height of Birds 18 feetNumber of floors 17Clock Details:-Height above ground level 220 feet CopyrightDiameter of dials 25 feet The Mersey PartershipLength of hour marks 3 feetSpaces between minutes 14 inchesWhen installed in 1911 clock was accurate within half a minute per year.
