From the archives this is a rare photograph of a ‘lost treasure’.

It was taken in 1966 to mark the fact that the cafe in the Italian Gardens in Blackburn’s Corporation Park had won a architectural award.

Sadly just a year later the building was destroyed by a fire. Do you remember the cafe? We’d love to share your memories and any photos you may have of it with Looking Back readers
