The Egyptian Chapter Room - Masonic Hall, Hope Street, Liverpool

Here are a few photos of the Egyptian Chapter Room and the large Temple Room which are found deep in the heart of the Masonic Hall, Hope Street in Liverpool. The Egyptian style décor of the Chapter Room is famed throughout the West Lancashire Province, and the attention to detail adds to the aesthetic feel and atmosphere of the Room, with scarabs hidden away in unsuspecting corners and crevices and examples of stylistic Egyptian symbolism. The Room itself only dates from the 1920s when the Hall was refurbished, and seems to capture the British obsession with Ancient Egypt at that time. There is also an adjoining Egyptian style dining room - a photo of which can be seen below.
