The Temple of Arts. One of the oldest surviving buildings in the town centre. Built in 1847 it became John Eastham's Temple of Arts photographic studio in 1853, said to have been the first in Blackpool. The outer wall was originally adorned by three carved figures - 'The Three Graces', Faith, Love and Charity. Created by the artist for many years until uncovered in 1976. Sadly they were damaged during building renovation in 1988 and were replaced by a plastic replica. Kindly donated by Lloyds Bank.
