I remember St John's being built, every time I came to Liverpool it had gone up a few more feet until eventually the restaurant was built on top. And I remember going to the restaurant quite a few times. Quite expensive for the day actually but it was well worth a visit to the top. And the thing rotated about once an hour if I remember, and one of the tricky bits was that the toilets always remained static but the tables moved. So if you went to the gents for example you'd have difficulty finding your table when you came back.
