Pavillion roof on the Municipal Buildings. The pavillion roof is not a common feature in England, there are few here in Liverpool. It's a French style.

The bronze doors at the Adelphi Bank. There are no references to it but it seems likely that the inspiration for these was the 'Gates of Paradise' the doors of the Baptistry by Ghiberti.(in Florence)

Not often seen this, the interior of the spiral staircase at 16 Cook St, by Peter Ellis. John Wellborn Root, who was in Liverpool when this building and Oriel Chambers were being constructed, included a spiral staircase,similar to Cook St, in his Rookery building in Chicago.
