Address: The Walker Art Gallery Interior William Brown Street, Centre-Town, L.1 - 1907

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

The generosity of Sir William Brown provided funds for the erection of a fine library and museum building in Shaw's Brow, then appropriately re-named William Brown Street, and to these beginnings new additions were quickly made. A large new circular reading room was added by the Town Council, and named in honour of Sir James Picton, and in 1873 Mr. A. B. Walker completed the group of buildings by presenting to the city a spacious gallery of art. The Walker Art Gallery was the first UK public art gallery.

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.

Address: The Lucania Pier Head, Centre-Town, L.1 - 1907

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

RMS Lucania was a British ocean liner built by Fairfield Shipbuilding and Engineering Company of Govan, Scotland, for Cunard and launched on Thursday, 2 February 1893.

Identical to her sister ship RMS Campania, RMS Lucania was the joint largest passenger liner afloat when she entered service in 1893. On her second voyage, she took the prestigious Blue Riband from her sister ship to become the fastest passenger liner afloat, a record she kept until 1898.

Her last voyage was on July 7th 1909, after which she was laid up at the Huskisson Dock in Liverpool. Then, on the evening of August 14th, 1909, she was badly damaged by a fire, and partially sank at her berth. Five days later she was sold for scrap.

Address: The Landing Stage, South End Pier Head, Centre-Town, L.1 - 1907

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

Originally, the Prince's Landing Stage was situated at the Pier Head to serve the trans-Atlantic liner service. There were a number of these stages built during Liverpool's history, the most recent opened in the 1890s and was joined to the neighbouring George's Landing Stage, situated to the south. After further lengthening took place in the early twentieth century, the combined structure originally measured 2,478 feet, almost half a mile. Both were scrapped in 1973, following the termination of trans-Atlantic services from Liverpool. In 1876 the landing stage at the Pier Head was the largest floating structure in the world.

Location: Liverpool

Category: landmarks

Address: Herculaneum Dock, Dingle, L.8 - 1907

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

The Herculaneum Pottery Works stood in the south of the coastline at Dingle where the Herculaneum Dock was, before it was filled in and used for housing. In the year 1794 Messrs. Abbey and Graham purchased a small copper works which had been there for twenty years previous to that date, and converted them into a pottery. Two years afterwards they transferred their interest to a joint-stock company ; and when, in the year 1800, the manufacture of china was added, the style of the Company became the Herculaneum China Ware Manufactory. The manufacture of pottery had by this time ceased to exist in its original home on Shaw's Brow, and the attempt to revive it under better conditions of transit, and with modern appliances and processes, seemed to promise success. But the hope was not realized, and in the year 1833 the company was dissolved ; the property ultimately passed into the hands of the Mersey Docks and Harbour Board, and the site was utilized for the Herculaneum Dock in the year 1864.

Category: landmarks

Address: Evening at New Brighton , , - 1907

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

In 1843 New Brighton is described as follows "a watering place, which at no very distant period, promises to become one of the most fashionable and delightful places of resort in this part of the kingdom. It was projected by James Atherton, Esq., of Liverpool, who purchased 170 acres of land, about seven years ago, and immediately commenced erecting marine villas. The situation has considerable advantages, it rises in a succession of ridges of a convex semicircular form, from the margin of the sea, and is capable of being arranged in terraces, so that none will intercept each other's view. The shore is admirably adapted for bathing, and there is an abundant supply of fresh water, which is received in a reservoir, capable of containing 1,600 gallons. Spacious streets, nearly a mile in length, are laid out, and numerous villas, and a commodious hotel, have been already erected ; showing the spirited manner in which the project of the proprietor is being carried out, and the gigantic nature of his plans."

This is now the site of the Liverpool One shopping complex.

Location: Liverpool

Category: landmarks

Address: Calderstones Park, Calderstones, L18 - 1907

  Painted by Liverpool Artist - J. Hamilton Hay

Originally, the Calder Stones were four or five in number, placed irregularly at the junction of four roads near Allerton. They appeared to be of considerable antiquity, and resembled what are generally considered Druidical remains. They bear traces of rude characters which have never been deciphered, but from the circumstance of finding coarse urns, containing human bones and dust, in digging about them, there is reason to believe that they indicate an ancient burial-place, - of what age or what people it has never been ascertained.
