Liverpool - More Great Buildings

I have been walking around in town for several days by now, there are a lot of big beautiful buildings even if Liverpool was hardly hit by the May Blitz in 1941.
Here comes a big collection :)

 Lime Street Station was built 1867 - 1879 from iron and glass. When Lime Street opened it replaced Crown Street as the terminus of the world´s first commercial passenger railway service, which ran between Liverpool and Manchester.

St John´s Beacon was built from 1966 - 1971 as ventilation shaft for the market but it was never actually used for this purpose. Instead, the tower was converted into a revolving restaurant and observation deck which eventually closed in 1983. In 2000, the tower was refurbished to become the home of Radio City 96,7 FM.

The oldest building in town
