Liverpool, landmarks, liverpool-the-town-hall-10.0x15.0-300
Location: Liverpool

Category: landmarks

Address: The Town Hall High Street, Centre-Town, L.2 - 1907

  As described in "Liverpool Artist - J. Hamilton Hay"

THE restoration and enlargement of the third Town Hall occupied a quarter of a century, and were carried out with great care and good judgment. The main walls of the old building were retained, and the additions, with the exception of the dome, were executed in the same style, under the superintendence of the London architect, James Wyatt. The dome and cupola, lighted with windows, and surmounted by a figure of Britannia - measuring 12 feet high, executed by the celebrated sculptor Richard Westmacott, R.A., and costing 400 - were completed in the year 1802 ; about the same time, the four statues, representing the four seasons, also by Westmacott, which still surmount the north facade, were placed in position at a cost of 500. The projecting portico and arcade at the front were finished in 1811, and the whole building was regarded as finished in the year 1820.

On account of its increased size and altered appearance it is generally spoken of as the fourth Town Hall, and with the exception of a few minor alterations which have been carried out from time to time, the building is the same externally now as it was then.

It is one of Liverpool's noblest and most elegant buildings, in the very centre of Liverpool's vast commercial activities ; and the pride which it inspired in our ancestors still lives in the veneration with which it is regarded by the citizens to-day.
