Crown Buildings, Crosby
Crown Buildings, Crosby
Crosby takes its name from the Old Norse for village of the cross, settled in 900AD by Norsemen who came from the Isle of Man and Ireland. This ancient village was merely a cluster of cottages until the growth of industry and commerce in the 18th century encouraged many Liverpool businessmen to look to the coast north of the city to build their homes. Crosby shopping centre stands at the top of Liverpool Road, a mish-mash of architectural styles not all as pleasing to the eye as Crown Buildings.
