Liverpool, Victoria St., Nos. 3-9

Also, known as Fowler's Building, Nos.3-9 were designed by James Allanson Picton for Fowler Brothers, produce dealers, and put up in two phases between 1865 and 1869. This was the first building of any pretension to be erected in the new street. Picton was a prolific designer of offices, and this is fairly typical of the style he used for such buildings, freely adapted from the architecture of Italian RenaissanceGlossary Term palaces. The columns on the ground floor are polished granite, and the windows of the floor above have curvy, almost BaroqueGlossary Term surrounds. Behind the front block with its decorative carved stonework there are ranges of much plainer brick warehouses. Fowler Brothers did not occupy the whole building - the offices and warehouses accommodated a number of different businesses.
