HRS 1399 Liverpool, Albert Dock Dec 1978

'The Albert Dock complex of dock buildings and warehouses in Liverpool is extraordinary and pioneering. It was designed by Jesse Hartley and Philip Hardwick, opening in 1846, it was one of the first structures in Britain to be built from cast iron, brick and stone in a so-called fireproof design. Later it had some of the world's earliest hydraulic cranes. The Albert Dock became a popular store for valuable cargoes such as brandy, cotton, tea, silk, tobacco, ivory and sugar.
