Artists Low Profile have put in large red letters stating PEOPLE on the western side of the building.

It is a temporary art installation.

Instagrammers took the chance to snap the wording and also take pictures inside and outside the Bus Station.

InstaMeets give city photographers, both pro and amateur, the opportunity to see inside buildings sometimes off-limits and also get first-looks at new things in the city.

The artwork marks the start of exhibitions and celebrations to mark 50 years of the Bus Station since it was built in 1969.

Beautiful and Brutal: 50 years in the life of Preston Bus Station will be on the Harris in the coming months.
