NOTES: The design for St George's Hall was won in open competition by Harvey Lonsdale Elmes in 1839. Construction began in 1841 and after Elmes's death in 1847 work was continued by the Corporation Surveyor, John Weightman, until C. R. Cockerell took over as architect in 1851. See RIBA130469 for a black and white version of this image.

St James's Cemetery, Liverpool

RIBA85167
Foster, John (c. 1787-1846)
NOTES: The cemetery was laid out by Foster within the former quarry from which stone for the docks and 18th century buildings had been removed.

Corn Exchange, Brunswick Street, Liverpool: perspective of the projected rebuilt building

RIBA85217
Picton, Sir James Allanson (1805-1889)
NOTES: The first Corn Exchange on this site was opened in 1808 (designed by John Foster Snr). A building by Picton replaced it in 1851. This print must have been produced before the building was completed as the inscription in the entablature has an incomplete date after 'rebuilt and enlarged'. Just visible at the end of Brunswick Street is Cockerell's Bank of England building.

Bluecoat Chambers, School Lane, Liverpool: perspective of entrance with school band playing

RIBA85173
NOTES: Built in 1716-1718 as a residential charity school for poor children, this is the oldest surviving building in central Liverpool. It has been suggested that it was designed by Thomas Ripley, architect of the Liverpool Custom House, or Thomas Steers, the dock engineer, but there is no conclusive evidence that either was involved. The school relocated to new premises in 1906 and the building became home to a group of artists and sculptors in 1907 and has served as an art space ever since. The Bluecoat Gallery was formally established in 1968.

St James's Cemetery, Liverpool: perspective from the south

RIBA85378
Foster, John (c. 1787-1846)
NOTES: The cemetery was laid out by Foster within the former quarry from which stone for the docks and 18th century buildings had been removed. This print is from a set of four prints with a single accompanying sheet of descriptive text to announce the scheme for a new Anglican cemetery in Liverpool and to encourage people to buy shares. These were published probably in late 1825 or early 1826.
