Ron,a very interesting photogragh,I don't think I have ever seen a group of orthodox Jewish people in Wigan before,it's quite a common sight in areas of Manchester and Leeds.and no doubt in other citys with large
Jewish communitys

Is that the hanging garden of Babylon? A good interesting shot on a nice sunny day.


Comment by Julie on 15th August 2012 at 01:26
Very smartly dressed, but I don't think hes got the right clothes on to be riding a bike..


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 15th August 2012 at 04:41
Could comment but would be accused of racism !!
Eon, did you select this from the several photo`s you no doubt took?


Comment by Mick on 15th August 2012 at 08:43
There a funny lot these Jews but they make nice tasty chicken soup and bake nice bread.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 15th August 2012 at 08:52
Julie, he`s no bicycle clips on his trousers either.
Mick will be disappointed that he can`t see more of the bike !!


Comment by Ron D on 15th August 2012 at 09:41
Every summer they come ,some times by the coach load, Ive spoke to a few ,they are always pleasant,and sociable.


Comment by Catherine on 15th August 2012 at 11:59
I wouldn't say that the orthodox Jews are 'a funny lot' just because they keep themselves to themselves and dress a little differently from the rest of us Mick. They are just ordinary people living their lives. Where I live, there are Menonite communities who dress differently but they are hard working people who live peacefully along side everyone else.


Comment by Garry on 15th August 2012 at 12:10
They'll not change the way they dress, Julie.


Comment by irene roberts on 15th August 2012 at 20:49
Just a family, like the rest of us, enjoying a sunny day at Haigh Hall. I have always found them to be pleasant people and I hope they had a good day.

Nice Shot Ron, how is it you always get the best shots


Comment by Al.C. on 16th August 2012 at 10:09
I've come in contact with them a few times, they always seem very pleasant and courteous people.


Comment by Skeets on 20th August 2012 at 00:08
Some kind and tolerant comments about these people, lovely. I'm just wondering what the comments would have been if they had been a group of muslims wearing Burkas?


Comment by Billy Boy Kingdom Brunel on 20th August 2012 at 20:55
They're human beings just like anyone else. Its just a pity that they (the Jews) and the Muslims, tend to consider themselves Jews or Muslims instead of just plain human beings.


Comment by Skeets on 20th August 2012 at 23:05
Thanks Billy, my point exactly.
