I was reading the latest posts in Name that Part and it got searching the net.
 I came across this and thought it was worthy of a new topic

Reminiscent of that film...what was it?....."Speed ?"

Where the climax sees the ocean liner running into the middle of town.  {-)

There must be lots of buildings all over the world with a maritime feel.

I'll leave it with you.

If you've ever been to Rotterdam Central station, you may have seen this just outside in the square.

Could be a contender for Name that ship.

Isn't the "big I" still floating and thus technically not a building?

I'll concede to that one...

Hi

Not a maritime museum (though Liverpool has a great one) but a hotel with a prow that faces the Mersey. When it was first built (seventies?) it was quite an exciting addition to the waterfront: and in those days it wasn't hemmed in either side by those two modern buildings.  I remember the hotel had a parrot in one of the bars, it was partial to a wee nip of the hard stuff - great fun. There is also to the far left the absolute monstrosity that is the Liverpool Daily Post and Echo Offices.

If you ever get to Liverpool don't miss a 2 minute walk through the ground floor of the Port of Liverpool Building - a fantastic bit of architecture looking up into the dome. It's on the waterfront so it's handy for The Albert Dock, The Maritime Museum, Merset Ferries, etc

Regards Norseman
