George’s Dock Ventilation and Control Station, Georges Dockway, Liverpool, L3 1DD

On the corner of the Strand and Mann Island in Liverpool stands the great, white Art Deco slab of a building that is the George’s Dock Ventilation and Control Station. It is a ventilation shaft for the first Mersey tunnel; as well as offices, it contains huge fans that extract foul air and force clean air in. It’s not open to the public but is worth a wander around its exterior; the Art Deco design shouts speed and efficiency, its numerous sculptures likewise.
