Art Deco at the top of Hardman Street
Destroyed by fire in the early 1930s and rebuilt soon after, The Philharmonic Hall is a good example of Art Deco architecture. Liverpool has some buildings in this style, although many of its greatest buildings were erected in a neoclassical style many years before when Liverpool's slavery/shipping was at its height.
This pic shows one of the staircases in said hall. There are two of them, one either side. And inside is one of the few remaining rising-from-beneath-the-stage organs in the world.
