The Royal Liver Building is a Grade I listed building on Liverpool's waterfront, right by the River Mersey.
Together with accompanying Cunard and Port of Liverpool buildings by Pier Head, the Royal Liver Building is known as one of the "Three Graces" that define the skyline of Liverpool.
Built in 1911, the building is famous for the two Liver birds adorning its clock towers, nicknamed Bella and Bertie. Bella looks out to sea to ensure the boats arrive safely into port, while Bertie watches over the city, protecting the citizens of Liverpool.
In my illustration of the famous building, the time is 10.19 because that is when I first rolled into Lime Street Station.
The Royal Liver Building is part of my series of Liverpool drawings and available as a premium, museum-quality giclée print in my webshop.
