George`s Dock Tunnel Ventilation Building (Liverpool)
The George`s Dock Tunnel Ventilation Building is one of the outstanding buildings of Liverpool.
It was built in 1931 - 34, to the designs of Sir Basil Mott, J. A. Brodie and Herbert J. Rowse, to serve the Mersey Road Tunnel.
Essentially an obelisk, reminiscent of ancient Egypt, it has statues of Night and Day and a memorial to the workers who lost their lives in the construction of the tunnel.
