A peaceful Sunday morning on Wallgate.

Nice well known scene even if it is a bit of a grey day.


Comment by Mick on 30th August 2012 at 00:36
Must have been taken just after the sweeping up team had been round.

What time on Sunday morning was this photo taken?
It looks like i was still asleep as it looks too early for me.


Comment by peterp on 30th August 2012 at 05:59
Nearly empty but at least its clear of litter for a change


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 30th August 2012 at 06:13
Looks nice and clean Colin. On a Saturday morning, there`s a lot of litter lying about when I`m going for the 08:20 train at Wigan NW. The smoker`s are outside the pub on the right whenever I walk past at opening times. Suppose you took this on the same day as your P-a-D last Sunday.

The entrance on the left, just past the Reflex building, used to lead to cattle holding pens which you could see from the iron bridge.The cattle were either loaded onto, or off trains. Very occasionally, one used to escape into Wallgate and then the chase was on!

Comment by Colin Harlow on 30th August 2012 at 19:38
The photo was taken around 6.30am, on the 19th August.


Comment by Ken R on 30th August 2012 at 21:15
Further to my first remarks, I remember a large sign on the wall where the girlie ad is that showed a large bunch of Fyffes bananas.


Comment by Garry on 30th August 2012 at 21:27
You can't turn left now from out of King st, Why i wonder. Any driver lost when he comes to Wigan is LOST and wont have a clue how to return back.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 30th August 2012 at 21:46
You can turn left, Garry - if you are driving a bus !!


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 30th August 2012 at 23:22
My first job on leaving school was in wallgate at Johnsons the dry cleaners...I hated it and my weekly wage was £2.10s 6d.I didnt stay there long!! .I then found a nice little opticians in wallgate and stayed there longer.
In johnsons there was a girl a bit older than me who used to draw "picasso"type pictures I still wonder if she made it as an artist.Her name was Doreen Turton.

I have a photo somewhere Ken R that shows the Goods Shed just along from the cattle pens that has a large Fyffes sign on it also, they must have been popular coming in by the wagon load.
