the building on the right with red on it, was my first place to work,it was called morcosia,what a long time ago that was.


Comment by David on 3rd March 2010 at 09:40
Driven under that bridge many times. Middle & Wood had their 'work shop' on the right just before the old Tmberlakes showrooms.


Comment by Art on 3rd March 2010 at 16:01
David, I think you'll find that the showrooms were Harry Williams Ford.
M & Wood were immediately behind & next door was the Ribble Bus Garage.
I was working at M & W in '68, when they moved the funeral business to Egerton House across Wallgate..

344 views an only 3 (4 wit mine) comments???? you'll av get anotha pie n chips pic on ere!!!


Comment by David on 3rd March 2010 at 17:48
Hi Art, You are right, it was Ford. If you worked for M & W in 1968 you probably new the foreman, Ted Bailey, Bill Jarvis, Joe Kettle myself and many others.


Comment by Art on 4th March 2010 at 01:09
David.If you were a relative of Old Charlie & Eddie (same surname) I do remember you.
I was on the taxi service,did B&T's with Mrs Jones, & the odd funeral.
Worked with Les Owen, Alec Farrimond, Bill Ashton,Len Loyd, Stappy of course & a few others. I only did about 12 months.
I think you used to enjoy the hospitality of Nobby clark from time to time ;o) I was a Pear Tree man meself, seen you pop in there occasionally with your mate.

One of the oh so familiar sites around Wigan and only Mick has the foresight to photograph it. Well done Mick.


Comment by David on 4th March 2010 at 19:22
Well I'm blowed! You are right on all accounts. I believe Les Owen died some years ago, but the names of Bill,Alec,Len and John Stapleton really bring back a lot of fond memories.Is Mrs Jones still around?


Comment by Art on 4th March 2010 at 20:39
I'm not sure about Mrs Jones, but if you go to the message boards> communicate> people. there's a "sticky" at the top about a reunion by "Dotty". You may know her as Mrs Mousdell, a former "lady attendant" as was Mrs Jones.
Long time since, quite a few memories..'eh? ;o)
There was one other who, years after I left, I had a few pints with...Chris Roberts (embalmer)he did a bunk tho'. Never seen him since

Where the 4x4 is, that use to be the Platelayers Arms pub on the corner of Wilcock St, and Miry Lane.


Comment by Neville Bougourd on 19th September 2015 at 20:00
Does anyone remember Mona Mary Magleave (or Maglave) who was married to a Polish airman. She lived in the Platelayers Arms after the war
