Lost Destination Prints by Dorothy

Forton Services Lost Destination

Some of the finest examples of loved/hated 1960s and early 70s architecture, ranging from Spaghetti Junction to Forton Services, are celebrated in the Lost Destination prints by Dorothy

New from the people who brought you the Golden Age Star Chart, this set of prints has been illustrated by Stephen Millership and deliberately references the romance of old travel posters. Each print carries the slogan 'Discover Yesterday's Forgotten Future', as the optimism that surrounded this architecture in back in the 1960s has gradually faded over time. 

The Forton Services, with its distinctive hexagonal 'Pennine Tower', opened to serve travellers on the M6 in 1965. Other buildings featured in the series of five prints - such as Portsmouth's Tricorn Centre -  have already been demolished, while another of the buildings featured, Preston Bus Station, is currently at risk. 

You can join in the celebration of these architectural landmarks by picking up a print for £35 each from here
