Blog Preston Founder Ed Walker said: “We felt the least we could do was ensure Tony’s photographic legacy lived on.
“I hope these pictures show Tony’s talent that so many of us admired and appreciated in the best possible light.
“The city is poorer without his fantastic pictures showing the light and shade of a proud Preston on a daily basis.”

A talented and prolific photographer, Tony amassed more than 78,000 pictures on photo-sharing website Flickr before passing away on Thursday 10 June, aged 61, at his home in Ashton-on-Ribble.
A launch event for the exhibition will take place on Saturday 11 December from 1pm to 3pm and all those who knew Tony or enjoyed his pictures are invited to come along.
The exhibition will be opened by the Mayor of Preston councillor Javed Iqbal.
The Flickr group that Tony founded and kept updated has recently been reinvigorated by Preston photographer Gary Bond.
