Scenes from Blackpool Town Centre

November 26, 2017

 Preparatory work underway at the junction of Talbot Road and Dickson Road - site of a former tramway junction and soon to be the scene of second generation tramway installation late in 2018.  The dreaded Wilko building now surrounded by contractors.

 Clever political messaging on the part of a certain constituency MP ?  or not

 

Abingdon Street -  trams stopped here in times gone by - now its a detoured bus service - one of many this winter....        Below :     The same location -  Yorkshire (Penny) Bank Building somewhat different and the tram and tram stop is just where the bus is in the above image taken in 1960 by the same photographer.
