STANLEY DOCK TOBACCO WAREHOUSE
The Stanley Dock Tobacco Warehouse in Liverpool is the world's largest brick warehouse. Standing 125 feet / 38 metres high, the building was in 1901 the largest in the world, consisting of 27 million bricks and 30.000 panes of glass.
The Grade II listed building was originally used to store shipments of tobacco when trading in the Port of Liverpool was at its peak.
After lying derelict for decades, the structure is now being transformed into luxury apartments. The building is also the filming location of Garrison Lane in the British crime drama series Peaky Blinders, just across from The Titanic Hotel Liverpool.
The Stanley Dock Tobacco Warehouse is part of my series of Liverpool drawings and available as a premium, museum-quality giclée print in my webshop. For my hand-drawn illustration, I decided to focus on the top part of the building, which took about 50 hours to recreate in graphite.

I make Liverpool art in graphite and coloured pencils on heavyweight fine art paper. A selection of my original pencil drawings is available as fine art prints in my web store.
All art prints in my shop are premium, archive quality giclées, made with archival pigment inks on matt, textured museum-quality paper.
