The floor tiling is good, better than flag floors. Coal miners certainly own some nice property.

Maybe a lot of the money was made by the coal board officials.

great shot and a proof of the pointlessness of the ever changing shopping in Wigan.
It seems that for most of my life the town centre has been in turmoil becauses of new developments, the new places just replace the existing ones in a different area, and every decade a different shopping area of the town becomes the new wasteland.
Brilliant picture though, and I bet your daughter is chuffed to bits at being a star!

Nice picture Brian. I agree wholeheartedly with Les regarding new developments. I have recently noticed a big new Pawnbrokers opening in Wigan centre and also a big flashy jewellers at the top of the arcade. One reflects the other. Crazy goings on!!
