Liverpool, Dale Street 1887

More about this scene


Caption for Liverpool, Dale Street 1887: Dale Street is one of Liverpool's original seven streets, and is captured here full of hustle and bustle. The Municipal Building, with its tower and clock face, stands out further up the street. Built between 1860 and 1866, this building housed the financial offices of the corporation when the town hall proved to be too small for the ever-expanding city council. The 'Dale' that gave the street its name was at the far end by St John's Gardens.
