    Background:
    The Royal Insurance Building, Dale Street, Liverpool, England was built between 1897-1903. The architect was J. Francis Doyle. It is a Grade II* listed building. The building's steel frame structure may have been the first such steel frame in the UK. It is finished with an Edwardian Baroque façade of granite and Portland stone, and an elaborate allegorical frieze by the sculptor C.J. Allen.


    Most of you who have been will notice the fire escapes in the basement walls. With a bit more inspection we found a tunnel running right around the whole building under the pavement. This was used as the escape in the case of a fire. You can then see in the pics that we then found a hatch then went even further underground. Thats another story :D
