This was copied from an old, faded and rather dirty photograph and in fact is clearer than the original. It is the work of Edward Fox, the Victorian photographer, and was taken in 1879 three years after Longhurst’s Brewery was opened here. Probably this is the oldest existing photograph of Preston Circus. The small centre buildings, of flints, were older than the remainder
