I noticed this view off the bus recently as it pulled into the bus-station and thought how colourful and cheerful it looked.

They must have known it was my birthday on that day and that's why the flags were flying.

Smashing photo, Dave.
A couple of points. This is what all of Wigan town centre could have looked like if it had not been demolished by certain powers that be. I know this is a little late, it is moan but also a plug for the Save Wigan Campaign. Join it now and make you voice heard for the future of our Wigan town centre (and beyond). JOIN SAVE WIGAN NOW.!!

It's probably because you're looking at it from the bottom end, Jean. Take a stroll with me on the right-hand pavement under the flags and past the cars to the top of the street, turn right, walk a few yards and we're outside Lowe's Department Store.

I think one of the worst acts of municipal vandalism was destroying the Commercial Yard.
