Who would have bought it? - Bus spotters, people who have recollections of seeing relatives, lovers off on bus, or perhaps there is nothing else remarkable about Accrington? Now to wait for the flak from Lancastrians!

Quickbeam As the entrepreneur and self taught architect who designed and sourced the recycled portacabins for this aesthetically pleasing vision of the 21st century transport hub I am mortally offended by your slur - you will be hearing from my solicitor. For your information, the complete run of postcards, all 10,000 were sold and my mother has them displayed in a prominent position in her prefab assuring me that they are more durable than wall paper and cheap at half the job lot price she willing paid ;o}}

I think that even a one legged dog juggling bones with the one remaining paw and it's nose on top of a draughty 1950s bus shelter would struggle to make this an interesting picture...

It doesn't say much about Accrington (with or without the help of Stanley) if the photographer couldn't find a better image to sell the place than this!
