Lower Road (Nos.51 - 59) - Lomax-Simpson, 1906

A stark contrast to the unusual crescent of continuous verandah by Professor Reilly at the upper end of Lower Road. This block,curving round into Central Road has half-timbering which was particularly well developed in Cheshire and a typical feature of many Port Sunlight homes.The quirky assymmetry of the chimney arrangement adds to the imposing buildings.

 

Lower Road (15 - 27) - Professor C Reilly, 1906

Although rather muted by Professor Reilly's standards, the continuous verandah, round headed dormer windows with scrolly side volutes are visually imposing. However, in the shadow of the Beaux Arts Classicism of the Lady Lever Art Gallery, which Reilly had a major design input, the block seems a little out of place.
