NOTES: The design for the Port of Liverpool Building (formerly Mersey Docks and Harbour Board Offices, more commonly known as the Dock Office) was won in competition by Briggs & Wolstenholme with Arnold Thornely and F. B. Hobbs. Built in 1904-1907, the structure is of steel encased in concrete, with a facing of Portland stone. The Royal Liver Building, designed in Edwardian Baroque style as the headquarters of the Royal Liver Assurance group by Walter Aubrey Thomas, was built in 1908-1911. It was the first reinforced concrete building to be built in the UK.

Product information:

Product overview

Images are printed to order on high quality photographic paper using the latest digital technology. Images can be ordered in either matt, semi-gloss or gloss finish.

If you intend to frame your print behind glass, then we recommend that you select the semi-gloss or matt finish so that you get less light reflection from the print/glass.

The images in our collection, although kept to the highest possible standards, can sometimes display irregularities. These may have been caused during their original printing, or through damage that has occurred before coming to RIBA. In some cases therefore, these may be visible on your photographic reproduction.

Please note that because the original images available come in all shapes and sizes, and will never be cropped or distorted, different images will have different borders. When you order a product, the product choice screen will give you an approximate portrayal of how the image will fit on different print sizes.
