FROM YESTERDAYS MERSEY MAGAZINE..SORRY TO KEEP PRAISING THIS INTERNET SERVICE BUT THE News COMES ACROSS ON THIS MUCH QUICKER THAN ON LIVERPOOL ECHO, BBC News OR WIRRAL GLOBE SITES



One of Liverpool’s most famous landmarks celebrates it centenary today

The Liver Buildings, was officially opened on 19 July 1911, just three years after the foundation stone for the building was laid

Since then it has dominated the Pier Head, providing a welcome sight for travelers as they reached their home port after months or even years at sea

Folk lore dictates that the Liver Birds, which dominate the top of the building act, as the city’s security for as we all know, as long as the birds remain atop of the close on three hundred feet high structure, and don’t fly away, the City of Liverpool will always be safe and secure

In reality of course it is impossible for them to desert the city

Each of them is eighteen feet high, their heads are three and a half feet long, the spread of the wings is twelve feet, their length is ten feet and the legs are two feet in circumference.

Their bodies and wings are of moulded and hammered copper and are fixed on a steel armature. The two birds face away from each other, one towards the river and the other towards the city.

Not many people will know that there is a sprig of seaweed in each beak


Forming part of the renowned Three Graces, the Royal Liver Building is one of the most recognisable landmarks in our city. It is a Grade Three Listed Building and is part of Liverpool’s UNESCO designated World Heritage Maritime Mercantile City.

The Liver Birds are of course the most famous feature of the building but the clock faces which are visible from either side of the Mersey are 25 feet in diameter and hold the distinction of being the largest electronically driven clocks in the United Kingdom

They were originally named “George Clocks” as a tribute to King George the Fifth because they were started at the exact time he was crowned on 22 June 1911

Over the next few days there will be lots of celebrations to mark the centenary, we will bring you a full programme of those events online tomorow, Wednesday .
