  Extract from the ads section in the 1914 edition of Wigan Town & Country Rambles by John T. Hilton.
My Dad bought the book in around 1926 when he first moved up to Wigan from Maidstone to work at Northern Counties.
Would you have tennis courts now behind a sports shop as then? I remember getting my 1st pair of footie boots in 56/57 for school from JJB.

My father bought me A Hornby train set from J J Broughtons in 1938 and also a rugby ball and rugby boots in 1947.

I remember getting my first hockey stick there. That would have been in 1950/51.
