Here are this week’s offerings for the Preston Photo Digest, collecting the best photographs of Preston on a weekly basis.

All of these images have been compiled from the Preston Flickr Group, but if you’ve got a photograph that you think deserves to be included, get in touch at joseph(@)blogpreston.co.uk.

I’ll also be updating and including a map of Preston (you can see it at the bottom of this post) which I’ll pin all the photographs to. By the end of the year we should have a fairly extensive photo map of Preston collated from the best photographs.

First up is this photo of a boat wreck near the Ribble Steam Railway. Nice light and some er…questionable artwork.

Next in this week’s photo roundup is this photo of the National Football Museum’s faded sign. It’s now moved to Manchester.

This final photos comes from the archives, and shows Penwortham Priory in the 1860s. We’ll have a full gallery of these including the story behind the photos on the site next week.
