The fruit exchange in Liverpool was built in 1888 for London and North Western Railway as a goods depot.
In 1923 it was converted by James B Hutchins to the fruit exchange.
Being a port town large sums of fruit arrived in Liverpool from all over the world, and the Fruit Exchange became the main hub for the fruit trade in the area.
Some of the warehouse space has been converted into licenced premises. As we arrived inside there was still music playing from the nightclub below. These new premises severely limit access to the site and renovations here would not be easy. Also the shape of the rooms are not ideal for standard use, so it be interesting to see how much remains through a renovation project. The building is Grade ii listed but I am unsure of how that relates to internal features.
It was a cold morning so I chose to keep that vibe with the tone of the images that I took here.
