Notes NOTES: This drawing was executed by Sheppard-Fidler while a student at the Liverpool University's School of Architecture. The design of this building 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.
