More about this scene

Caption for Liverpool, Adelphi Hotel 1870: This is the original Adelphi Hotel: it was built in c1840 on the site of Adelphi Gardens by the Midland Railway Company, and was in direct competition with the London North Western Railway Hotel, which was further along Lime Street. The hotel we see here had a glass balcony, and a large portico entrance was added at the turn of the century. This building was demolished in 1912. The present Adelphi Hotel was built on the same site, with its architecture based on the style of an Atlantic liner.
