Bright Future

I am showing  a piece that has featured before (Gateway to Space.) The artwork is always very popular when people visit and therefore warrants a second viewing.  It is called Blackpool 2068, created by Emilios Hatjoullis back in 1968!

SHOTS48 782This was his view of Blackpool in the future, very space-age and high tech.   The promenade and the Pleasure Beach look so futuristic, even the Lifeboat has been upgraded.

Now you know why Blackpool Council has the motto “Progress”.

 

 

……and for those of you following the project.  It is nearing completion and later this year the whole database will be available to view.

I do hope you will visit the site at www.Blackpool.gov.uk/illuminationscollection
