Hamilton Square station was built by the Mersey Railway and opened on 1 February 1886. It is an underground station, the platforms being reached by lifts from the surface. This the station's large hydraulic lift tower.
The Mersey Railway was electrified in 1903, as despite the journey being far quicker than travel aboard the Mersey Ferries passengers were not keen on travelling underground due to the smoke from coal-powered steam locomotives. A "Frequent electric trains" sign was thus erected, as seen here.
