The Passenger's Palace
Offer Price £5.99
The Passenger’s Palace – 100 years of Cunard Building Liverpool charts the building from its design and construction during the Great War to its role for more than 50 years as global headquarters of the company which pioneered transatlantic passenger travel. With access to Cunard’s
own records, and the memories of many who worked there, the book explains the importance of the building to both the company and the city
which will forever be its spiritual home.
Momentous decisions defining both the company and periods of British history were taken within its walls, whilst the paints which became the distinctive livery of its liners were tested against the elements on its roof!
Hundreds of Liverpudlian families made weekly visits to collect the wages of loved ones serving Cunard at sea.
Cunard Building has always been more than a waterfront office, and a new chapter in its history is about to begin. The book examines the part the building has played in many other aspects of life in Liverpool. It is lavishly
illustrated with rarely seen archive images together with new material created by one of the United Kingdom’s most renowned architectural photographers specially commissioned by Cunard.
The Passenger’s Palace –100 years of Cunard Building Liverpool will capture the interest and imagination of anyone who has ever worked for, or sailed with, Cunard or passed by Liverpool’s world-famous
waterfront and stopped to ponder the part played by the youngest of the Three Graces in the growth of a great company in a great city.
