Oriel Chambers, Liverpool

Oriel Chambers, Liverpool, originally uploaded by fotofacade.

Not a great photograph - but a remarkable building. Oriel Chambers is reputed to be one of the first iron framed commercial buildings on the planet - built by Peter Ellis in 1864. In terms of it's style it is a pre-cursor of the modern movement. A must see building for archi buffs!
