Hi Ron, thanks for this wonderful photograph. Would this be around about Tan House Lane with the houses on the right being the 'new houses' or upper/lower row? Love the folk sat on the grass bank wonder who they were?

By the way Ron I believe you are a very good friend of Peter Mason, I'm his niece!

Comments by RON, 23rd February 2008  
I think the photo was taken where the row of white painted cottages are. Yes I know Peter, a really nice man. However, I haven't seen him since he retired from the Queens Hall.
I was deeply shocked to hear about his daughter before Christmas. I also believe himself and his wife aren't to well either?

Ron, we were all deeply shocked about Kim and yes auntie Florence is quite poorly.
Where did you find this postcard? Are there any more do you know of Winstanley/Highfield?

The only other postcards of Winstanley/ Highfield I have are on the site. Postcards of this part of Wigan are very rare for some reason? I got this card off Ebay.
