Wouldn't like to clean those windows at the top of the building.

Well that looks a nice well kept terrace of houses, even if most of the street is missing. I lived in a house just like these in Dicconson St, No 38 I think it was. It was on the right going down towards the Methodist Church, just before a big archway that led through to the back & on into Menses St. Big houses that had cellars & yards out the back with high walls. I was talked into getting on the wall by my cousin Peter Bryson & then cried my eyes out because I was too frightened to get down ! Nice picture, I'll save it if thats ok ?

Does anyone live in those, or are they all business premises now?


Comment by Cyril on 28th February 2010 at 12:43
Aren't the houses with the red doors what was formerly Gunn's now converted into flats?

Helen your cousin Peter Bryson did he live on Toogood Lane at Wrightington in later life, just wondering if they are same one.


Comment by Helen on 28th February 2010 at 13:28
Cyril, think Peter did live at Wrightington. I have an address somewhere. He died a good few years ago & Josie his widow died a couple of years ago. There are a couple of pics with him in, on WW...the Wigan Grammar pics posted recently.

He will be the same Peter I was thinking of Helen, he was also a teacher at Pemberton Senior School.


Comment by Helen on 1st March 2010 at 09:55
Thats him Cyril, did you know him well ?


Comment by Cyril on 1st March 2010 at 19:21
Hello Helen, yes I suppose so, I was a pupil of his in the 1960's. I also rode a scooter in the late sixties - early seventies and saw him quite a few times on Toogood Lane and around the general area, I can't remember if he had son or a daughter with him at one time. I remember he could shout a lot at those who wanted to act silly in class, but generally he was okay and could be quite funny.
