Thats first time Ive ever seen a street vendor sat down on the job.
Just imagine if the man selling Wigan Evening post at top of Makinson arcade was sat down every time you wanted to buy a paper.

Trying to place where this is.
Is it the top of Standishgate & was W H Smiths where Woolworths used to be ? Then, where you see Debenhams, you went around the road to the Ritz ? Help !!

How many future Wigan marriages started out by a meet at the front of Woolies on a Sunday night? ;-)
I wonder how different my life would have been I hadn't been stood up there one Sunday after a promise of "8 0'clock outside Woolies" after a night in Bluto's ;-)
