Date Built

The Strand
This former office block faces on to The Strand across from another of Aubrey Thomas' creations, the Royal Liver Building.  It is apparently one of the first steel-framed buildings in the country.  It is clad in grey granite on the first floor and above that with white terracotta made by Doultons.  Since 2006 it has been a mixed-use building with residential, commercial and retail occupants.  In 1975 it was given a Grade II* Listed status by English Heritage.
