More about this scene


Caption for Liverpool, Dale Street 1895: Dale Street was one of the ancient streets of the city and the main road to all points south. It contained many fashionable and important buildings, and was the home of many of the rising insurance companies who did business on the back of the Liverpool shipping companies.

The tower in the distance is the Liverpool Municipal Building, constructed by the Corporation when the Town Hall proved too small.
