NOTES: This building contains the ventilation tower and control station for Queensway Tunnel under the River Mersey connecting Liverpool and Birkenhead. It was shattered internally by a land mine and part of the structure was destroyed by bombing during World War II. Since no fire occurred, it was possible to reconstruct the building to its original pre-war design by Herbert J. Rowse.
