For 100 years, Liverpool's magnificent Cunard Building has stood proudly at the Pier Head as a reminder of glories past for both the city and the most famous passenger shipping line in the world.

Now, the last of the Three Graces to be built joins her sisters in reaching its centenary.

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.

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 will capture the interest and imagination of anyone who has ever worked for, or sailed with, Cunard or has ever 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.
