Lime Street Station

OK this might only be of interest to railway buffs, but Lime Street Station has some interesting features. Construction of the station started in 1833 and opened to the public in 1836.

Because of rapid expansion the station had to be extended by 1842 and decision was made to install a full iron roof supported on iron columns which were sited between the track. The roof was completed in 1849 and can still be seen today.

many of the architectural feature are still evident and worth a look.

 
                   

Radio City Tower

The tower was originally a revolving resturant and through the decline years of the early eighties the tower stopped being used for retail purposes.
