Bold Street Liverpool Original building 1828 Art Deco frontage 1935

65-67 Bold Street, Liverpool - Architect Unknown - Photographer Alan Howarth*

65-67 Bold Street was built in 1828, as a chapel, the Art Deco frontage was added in 1935 to create the premises of William Watson, Motor Car Dealer.

Bold Street has a varied past, formerly a Rope Walk close to Liverpool docks, it was named after the rich and successful Jonas Bold a renowned slave merchant, sugar trader and banker, he became Mayor of Liverpool in 1802.

Bold street developed into Liverpool's exclusive shopping street and was dubbed 'The Bond Street of the North' and the 1828 chapel became a place of entertainment called Queen's Hall.

It went through several changes - The Panorama Hall, Queen's Operetta House and the Bijou Opera House. In the 1890's it became the Yamen Cafe.

William Watson, Motor Car Dealer, commissioned the Art Deco frontage, it was built in 1935.

Times have changed, and as with many city centres, development has moved the focus to newer shopping centres and larger premises, Bold street still starts near the city centre but ends in a less salubrious part of the city. Talk is of a bohemian-arty-crafty-antiquey-markety development, a la London's Portobello Road - sound a positive development.

The building was for sale for £100,000 when I made this photograph in July 2010, Could you buy anything more beautiful?

Agent Sutton Kersh suitable for Retail or Restaurant - send me an invitation to the opening if it's a restaurant . . .please.

Interesting Urban Myth, or Urban Fact, for visitors to Bold Street - it's occasionally subject to a 'timeslip phenomena' and people report being transported back to the 1950's and 1960's - it didn't happen while I was there but . . . you have been warned!

I want to photograph the the finest examples of Art Deco Architecture in the UK, and some of the less fine too - please e-mail me your suggestions - especially private houses - here's some I've already photographed
