Description

India Buildings, Liverpool.

The India Buildings was built between 1924 and 1932. Like many buildings in Liverpool, it was bombed in the 1941 Blitz, but happily it was later restored. The style is apparently in the Italian Renaissance mixed with more than a hint of American Beaux Arts style. It used to be the home of the Passport Office and I have fond memories of going there and other offices. One of my bosses would send me there to buy first day covers from the post office. He would also send me to the chemist almost next door to collect his holiday pictures. Oh the joys of being a junior clerk! Well worth strolling through when in the city. I took this on the morning of 3rd September 2014, converting to mono to add a little impact.

An excellent interior shot with form,shape, contrast and reflections; everything you could ask for in a black and white image. The distant figure adds to the impression of depth.

Superb pic Rod, the mono works so well and the composition with the figure is spot on. I must say, do they let people walk on such a clean and polished floor?

Yes, they do allow people to walk on the floor, even locals including me! How good is that?
