Poster art on display at Preston train station

An art project has been displayed in various locations across Preston, which looks at the relationship between the history of transport in the city.

Cherry Tenneson is showcasing part of the project, which is the result of a year’s worth of research into Charles Quick’s ‘In Certain Places’.  This specifically looks at Preston’s relationship with modernist transport design between the late 1950’s – 1960’s and how these designs exist today, with posters and signs on show at the bus station and the train station.

Cherry explained the designs of each poster on display, “The train station poster ‘Outward journeys must not be in the past’ focuses on a journey planner error message, alongside the only lasting design of British Rail Corporate Identity – the double arrow logo.

“The bus station posters focus on the original slick Helvetica signs, intended to give the impression of luxury air travel, and how they have changed and interrupted over the years.”
