The Liver Building is crowned by two 5.5m (18ft) tall copper Liver Birds, the symbol of Liverpool. Legend says that if the birds ever fly away, Liverpool will cease to exist.
When built in 1911, the Liver Building was widely reported to be Britain's first skyscraper. Built using a composite steel and concrete structure, it was revolutionary in many ways and still remains the dominant building on Liverpool's waterfront.
At 25 feet in diameter, the building's clock faces are the largest in Britain.
