Artist's Description

The Pierhead stands between the North and South docks (Albert Dock) and is an important Liverpool landmark, being the home to the most recognizable Liverpool buildings in the World,, known locally as the “Three Graces”, the Royal Liver building, Cunard building and the Port of Liverpool building.
The river wall, fronting the Pierhead, was first built to enclose the George’s Dock (opened 1771, closed 1900) this consequently being filled in to enable the construction of the Royal Liver Building.
Right up to present day the Pierhead is constantly changing with a link being built to join the Leeds & Liverpool canal to the Albert Dock. This would see the construction of the access canal directly spanning the front of the “Three Graces”

The Liver Building was built completed in 1911. The Cunard Building in 1916 and The Port of Liverpool building in 1907.
