A call for The Three Graces office workers of the past

BBC Bristol

A call for The Three Graces office workers of the past.

Have you worked in the one of the offices of the Port of Liverpool Building, the Liver Building or the Cunard Building? Did you parents or Grandparents work in any of these offices? Do they remember the buildings construction and openings?

If so, the development team at BBC Bristol would like to hear from you.

We are currently developing a programme about how buildings work, from the point of view of the people who worked in them. We are looking for accounts from the time, diaries of the clerks who were working in what was effectively the first office environment, letters from the construction workers who were building some of the grandest buildings in the country.

We are looking for anything that will help us to build up a picture of what was like for the people who had to use these buildings everyday. From the managers to the cleaners and everyone in between, we want to hear what people really thought of these historic pieces of architecture when they were fist opened.

Any written account, long or short, will be incredibly valuable to us. So please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
