Back in Time

Industrial Blackpool seen from the top of the 'Kop' on Blackpool FC Ground looking north.  Gasometers and electricity generating stations dominate the skyline with 'Central Sheds' and varied motive power on hand for avid engine spotters.  Probably a Home Match is being played judging from the array of prewar and early postwar private cars lined up behind the football ground.   Blackpool Corporation Transport is just out of picture on the far left hand side.  A mix of private coaches is neatly lined up in the background on Rigby Road Coach Park - under management of the Transport Department in this era.    Image :   John Woodman Archive
