He said: “It is all black and white street photography.

“There are a few from Preston, we go into Liverpool and Manchester, up to Glasgow and London, Helsinki.

The exhibition has been running for two weeks, and will continue until February 26.

Alf, 47, said: “I’ve been quite taken aback by the interest it has caused.”
