Station construction and opening

The station originally opened as Tithebarn Street railway station on 13 May 1850, [1] as the terminus of the Liverpool, Crosby and Southport Railway, Liverpool and Bury Railway and Liverpool, Ormskirk and Preston Railway, replacing an earlier station at Great Howard Street nearby.

The station was extensively rebuilt and enlarged between 1886 and 1888, being renamed Liverpool Exchange on 2 July 1888.[2] Its site expanded from the original location to cover Clarke's Basin (the original end of the Leeds-Liverpool Canal). The station then became the Liverpool terminus of the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway and was also the terminus of the LYR's Liverpool to Manchester line. Under four extremely long roofs lay ten platforms, providing long distance services to destinations such as Manchester Victoria, Blackpool North the Lake District, Whitehaven and Glasgow Central. Bradford Exchange and Leeds Central
