Was there a job lot on satellite dishes?


Comment by Blue eyes on 8th December 2012 at 08:30
OOOOOHH NO another boring photo ....


Comment by Al.C. on 8th December 2012 at 09:44
Is that the old laobur club ont he right, is it still going?


Comment by Al.C. on 8th December 2012 at 10:28
Sorry can't spell this morning, mean to say is that the old Labour club on the right and is it still going?


Comment by Jathbee on 8th December 2012 at 10:43
Can I just reiterate Mick. I am not Blue Eyes
Lol.

OOOOOHH NO another boring comment ....


Comment by Neil Rigby on 8th December 2012 at 11:24
I find the photo personally interesting. My cousin used to live in the street on the left, I used to visit the club on the right regularly and my mother used to work at Enfield Mill, which used to have an entrance on the left further up the street. The street seems not to have changed much over the last 40 years or so, but peterp's comment about satellite dishes is revealing as "the sign of the times." Thanks for the photo, bringing back old memories and an up-to-date perspective on Wigan World.


Comment by Bradshaws Girl on 8th December 2012 at 12:15
Drove down that street only yesterday.
My uncle Jim Garner used to have the Enfield Inn and my other uncle Wilf Garner used to have the newsagents further up on the opposite side to the pub. Jim is now dead but Wilf still lives in the area and is a regular at St Matthews church.


Comment by Carol on 8th December 2012 at 12:26
The club is still open but under newer management from years ago. My mum still lives in the next street (moved there - early 60's) and my brother lives in a side street off Enfield St. So I'm often in that neck of the woods.


Comment by Colin Harlow on 8th December 2012 at 13:07
A small car garage and filling station in the name of Brian Gaskell and son, based just on the left further up. The place was a tip inside the garage, but you could buy anything from there.

yyyyyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwn!!!!!nuff said ;-)


Comment by Mick on 8th December 2012 at 18:29
Colin Harlow, Brian Gaskell garage is now based in Appley Bridge.


Comment by Gary on 8th December 2012 at 19:23
I thought you'd got lost, dirty harry. What a pity , you haven't.


Comment by Nevi on 8th December 2012 at 20:08
Mick, did you call in the Enfield Street chippy??


Comment by Lizzie down under on 8th December 2012 at 20:47
Hey Bradshaws Girl! Any more thoughts on our St Peter's school? I can't remember If we had school photos done. I have been trying to get into an archival part of the website but they don't seem to have one, any thoughts? Cheers, Lizzie


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 8th December 2012 at 21:04
Ernest,to your question.No i dont think so !!

DH where have you been lately??


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 8th December 2012 at 22:37
Mick, I started motoring in 1954 on a Royal ENFIELD motorbike. Did you have motorbikes?


Comment by Mick on 8th December 2012 at 23:35
Ernest I used to have a BSA 250


Comment by Neil Rigby on 9th December 2012 at 00:08
My father had an AJS motorbike and used to ride along Enfield St. In addition to my cousin living off to the left, another uncle/aunt lived, more or less, opposite Gaskell's garage and my mother's family lived (at one time) at the top of Enfield St. I hope I haven't bored or sent certain people to sleep with this undoubtedly interesting information.


Comment by Mick on 9th December 2012 at 08:03
I cant ever remember seeing a bus going down Enfield St.


Comment by Colin Harlow on 9th December 2012 at 09:53
Thanks Mick, I should have said "used to be there"!


Comment by britboy on 9th December 2012 at 14:58
Again an excellent reminder for the ex-pats, drove down Enfield St many a time.
What may appear boring to some is an archive of memories past for me.
Keep up the good work all photographers that kindly submit photos to Photo-a-Day of Wigan and district.


Comment by ann21 on 9th December 2012 at 17:06
Mick I have never seen a bus going down Enfield St, but there is a bus stop there. I will find out.


Comment by Al.C. on 10th December 2012 at 09:48
Thanks Carol, I have not walked down there myself for about 20 years.
