Huge structures do it for me.
Visually that is…
I first saw Preston’s bus station in the 70’s, and it was probably the biggest thing I’d seen at that point – Clitheroe doesn’t have many huge buildings!
It’s the shape and majesty of the thing – the curved edges, the ribbed reinforcement bars, the unchanging pattern along the length of the car park…
On seeing the Culture Show’s report about proposed the closing and demolition of the building, I decided to pop over and capture some images, just in case I never saw it again.
Here they are – timeless in black and white, apart from the buses, these image could have been taken any time in my lifetime.
