Harris Art Gallery Exhibition – Beautiful and Brutal 50 years of Preston Bus Station

An interesting display between 21st September and 24th November 2019 to mark the 50th year of Preston’s Bus Station and it’s car park.    Controversial because of its brutal style and that it was accessible to passengers only through subways and an overpass.

For many years it was the largest bus station in Europe.  Now only one side is in use.

The Harris display laid out plans and models of the architect ideas.  Plus some items from the bus station like the barber’s chair.

To match the grey concrete most of the display was in grey with only a couple of coloured items which stood out.
