Old Photographs of Liverpool: Speke Airport, Liverpool 1 | 2 | 3
Some images of the old Speke Airport today
Now serving as a Crown Plaza hotel, the old airport terminal is guarded by one of the 1930s Dragon Rapide aircraft that once flew from here.
The once-crowded observation platforms are now deserted but the terminal still looks as handsome as it always did.
Some views of the interior: the lobby and, below, the lovely Art Deco staircase
Some architectural details easily missed. Above: a dramatic flying man from the facade of one of the hangars
and, below, each of the guttering downspouts is aptly decorated with this 1930s aircraft....
