Egg & Dart


The Egg & Dart motif is probably the most often used classical moulding. It can seen over doorways and capitals of all types of classical building,from Temples to Georgian and Regency town houses.

Regency Ironwork

Just walk down Rodney St and look up at the balconies, a fantastic array of different styles. The earliest balconies are probably from the first decade of the 19thc. There are houses on Rodney St from the 1790's with balconies but nobody seems to know if they are original or were added at later date. Balconies were originally made of wrought iron but by the early 19thc most were mass produced in cast iron.The early balconies in Liverpool, Rodney St and Mount Pleasant, are quite restrained but still show a lot variation. By the the 1830's they become much more ornate, Canning St ,Percy St and by 1840 almost filling the framework with acanthus,the western end of Canning St.

Railings are also worth a closer look, a surprising amount of original stuff survives. I say surprising because most of the railings of the walls of the artisan terraces were removed as part of the war effort(in reality for propaganda purposes, very little was actually melted down for armaments) the wealthy were obviously exempt
Anyway, like balconies,the early examples are quite restrained. The best examples are on Upper Parliament St, with heads of Honeysuckle and Pineapple.

Canning St, east of Catherine St. This terrace dates from 1845, although still in the classical style of the area, the balconies differ in the use of acanthus leaf instead of the usual honeysuckle or palmette motif.
