Woodside Ventilation Station, Birkenhead, UK, 8 August, 2008

This monumental, 45 m tall ventilation shaft above the Queensway Tunnel is often misattributed to Herbert James Rowse, but it and the two in the background are (fairly obviously) by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, architect of Liverpool's Anglican cathedral and the Bankside power station (now the Tate Modern) in London.
The station behind and to the left of the Woodside vent is in Sidney Street and has two towers, but the one further to the right, in Taylor Street, more closely resembles the Woodside vent. As I hope is obvious, it's rather further away than the building with the chimney, which is in Canning Street.
