Elmes, Harvey Lonsdale (1814-1847)
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. This is a copy of a photograph taken circa 1851. The temporary structure leading up to the east portico (colonnade) was built in anticipation of a visit by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in a tour of Liverpool in 1851. The pediment sculpture in the south portico, designed by Cockerell with modifications by Alfred Stevens and executed by William Nicholl, was taken down after the Second World War. The granite columns serving as gate posts by the east portico were originally part of a screen in the great hall where the organ was installed. The great hall and concert hall were yet to be completed at this stage.
