Preston Bus Station’s history is being explored in a new exhibition.Advertisement
The Harris Museum and Art Gallery is due to mark 50 years of one of the city’s most iconic buildings.
Grade-II listed in 2013 the Bus Station has often divided opinion amongst the city over whether it is architecturally beautiful or not.
The Harris is asking for memories of the Bus Station to help form its exhibition, Brutiful, in nod to the building’s unique style.
Curator James Arnold said: “Did you hang out and meet with friends at the Bus Station?
“Perhaps you bought your clothes from Look-In boutique, have photographs, kept souvenirs or a diary?
“Did you work in the bus station or for a bus company? Do you still have your uniform, a lucky mascot or bus station mascot?
“Were you involved in the campaign to save the building or have you worked on its restoration?”
