More about this scene

It was planned that around St George's Hall there would be unbuilt areas so as to show off the Hall, the grandest of the civic buildings. At the back is St John's Gardens, and in front is the open area of St George's Plateau. At the time of our photograph, it contained the equestrian statues of Prince Albert (1866) and Queen Victoria (1870), and the four lions (1860) designed by the man who put the finishing touches to the hall, Charles Robert Cockerell. This was a busy and important area of Liverpool for a century before our photograph. The cenotaph and the reminder of two world wars are still to come.
