Comment by Ken R on 18th February 2013 at 00:03
Nice shot of Wigan Central, it seems the patio has staked its claim but there's not many folks about.


Comment by Art on 18th February 2013 at 01:04
On a wider angle lens...Incuding more of the scene!!


Comment by Mick on 18th February 2013 at 04:09
It must be early Ernest because theres no eastern europeans sat sipping coffee and smoking there smelly cigs outside of Starbucks.

I wonder what those chalk marks means.


Comment by alan on 18th February 2013 at 04:58
They need to do something about those uneven flags on the pavement.

Otherwise, a good photo.


Comment by Jonno on 18th February 2013 at 08:44
It,s 11-08 Mick.


Comment by Pat on 18th February 2013 at 11:35
Nice enough photo - captures Wigan well, but not interesting enough to make a JigSaw puzzle of!!

Mick I bet our friends from abroad are onthe other side of the road in sun .if its out


Comment by Fred Mason on 18th February 2013 at 22:36
Lovely pic, Ernest.

I wonder where the people are?

I used to fancy a lovely lass who worked at H. Samuels, jewellers across the road at the top of the Makinson Arcade.

Maureen was her name...!!!!


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 18th February 2013 at 22:40
I took this photo on Wed.6th Feb.`13.which was cold with a NW wind and explains the few people about, also nobody sat outside Starbucks.
I`d decided to take it before `Art`comment 5th Feb.01:01 on David Thomas`P-a-d 30th Jan.
Only A Parr and myself commented on David`s photo not being natural. Garry and `Art` were disparaging. David didn`t reply to my comment at 23:11 on his 2nd Feb.P-a-D, but he must have used a zoom lens.
The time on Wigan Parish Church clock cannot be relied upon for accuracy!


Comment by Ken R on 18th February 2013 at 23:54
The chalk marks, could be..... Audio, Video and Wi-Fi below this flagstone.


Comment by Art on 19th February 2013 at 01:07
Disparaging?...A true comment...The original was square & in focus, without trickery, as you tried to accuse the photographher of.

Anyroad why haven't you got your verticals, vertical, they were in the original...doh!!:o(


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 19th February 2013 at 21:37
Lizzie and Gerald ,I too, used to catch my bus there .Can`t remember the number....its a long,long time ago !! How places change,looks a lot quieter than how I remember it.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 19th February 2013 at 23:29
Jean, if you click on Album, Work, Wigan Corporation Transport then look at page 3 and you`ll see the bus routes for 1970. No doubt they were the same for earlier. The bus to Preston is still no.113 and was the same pre-war!
There were 3 bus routes to Beech Hill, Nos.1, 1A and 1B.
My comment at 22.40 yesterday explains the absence of people.
