This former branch of
Lloyd's Bank, built in the 1920s, was part-designed by the son of the
architect of The Liverpool Union Bank, almost opposite at 43 - 47 Bold
Street. Separated by Grayson the Elder's design by 35 years, the later
design is much plainer, white Portland stone with minimal decoration.
The corner is flattened, containing one grand
window with a faux balcony. Above this window is a
Liver Bird medallion. The
corner doorway is flanked by a pair of
decorative window panels, each nautically
themed and surmounted by a delicate relief of
Lloyd's prancing horse. All the dressings are credited as being
probably by Herbert Tyson Smith.
