It is located at the Pier Head and, along with the neighbouring Royal Liver Building and Cunard Building, is one of Liverpool’s Three Graces, which line the city’s waterfront.

Liverpool’s ‘Three Graces’
My re-creation above, is in pen and watercolour of a scene at Liverpool Docks in the early 20th Century. Lining the waterfront here are 3 distinctive buildings. The Port of Liverpool Building, generally known as the Dock Office, is in the left background. To the right behind it (red in my painting) is the Royal Liver Building. The Cunard Building is between the other two.
These buildings, all Grade I or II listed, are together known as . . .
Liverpool’s Three Graces.
