Andrew , I hoped there would be more pictures from your visit to the tower, looking forward to more. This is very effective in monochrome . Thank you.


Comment by Ellen on 19th August 2013 at 02:01
I love this picture! What a variety of shapes,textures and shades!


Comment by Lizzie down under on 19th August 2013 at 05:19
Magnificent Andrew.....love monochrome.....it has this spooky feel about it....this for my album....many thanks....cheers!!!


Comment by Dave (Oy) on 19th August 2013 at 07:13
Nice mono mate - lots to see.


Comment by Anne on 19th August 2013 at 07:56
How different on the "inside" it is, not how I thought it to be. Super idea monochrome.


Comment by kath Pressey on 19th August 2013 at 09:12
was that the old court building? it's amazing how often I've walked down that road and never looked up.i've never noticed the turret or that little one on the opposite corner.


Comment by Janice on 19th August 2013 at 11:36
Marvellous image Andrew. Not a big fan of B & W but some images just lend themselves to it - as this one does. A well taken and well chosen subject. Did you use a tripod or was it hand held? Beautifully sharp. Kath, it's surprising how often we don't look up - or look back! Since I took up photography I 'see' much more than I ever did before. Wish I was this good though.


Comment by Garry on 19th August 2013 at 12:40
Would that be a railway line..top right corner?


Comment by Henry on 19th August 2013 at 15:24
Monochrome...no thanks.


Comment by Fred Mason on 19th August 2013 at 18:22
Excellent monochrome pic, Andrew.

It shows another side of Wigan as well.

Great detail and atmosphere. Look at all the chimney pots....!!!


Comment by dave johnson on 19th August 2013 at 18:43
Garry, that is the line from Wigan Wallgate to Kirkby.


Comment by Dave Marsh on 19th August 2013 at 18:55
I remember going into the police station there in 1965 where they kindly endorsed my passport photograph.


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 19th August 2013 at 21:08
Good photo Andrew,very impressive.I cannot for the life of me think where these buildings are though,dont recognise them at all.


Comment by Andrew Fishburn on 19th August 2013 at 21:31
Thanks for your kind words, folks.

Janice, it was hand held - it was a lovely sunny day, and no need for a tripod. Just keep shooting lots and lots, and the more you shoot, the more you learn.

Jean F (Wales) these are the old county court buildings on Crawford Street.


Comment by linda massa on 19th August 2013 at 21:31
County police station, used to work there in the 60's.


Comment by linda massa on 19th August 2013 at 21:34
Jean, Crawford Street, facing the parish church gardens.


Comment by Art on 20th August 2013 at 01:35
Anybody remember the Dole Office, before Brocol House was built?

It's in the pic..;o)


Comment by Barry Cusick (Treasurer) F O H C P on 20th August 2013 at 09:42
Such craftmanship they had back then with there Multi Fac`eted Grandioso desines,working with basic tools. Yet we with all our knoledge and endles tools seem only able to erect tin sheds that resemble rather large Mecano sets .


Comment by John H on 20th August 2013 at 11:01
I would have rather seen it in colour, but I love the shot & its razor sharpness. I think this shot is beautiful


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 20th August 2013 at 21:46
Thanks Andrew and Linda,I managed to read the st.sign of crawford st
through my lifesaving magnifier,but couldnt remember where that was !!!


Comment by Franky on 21st August 2013 at 22:15
Anyone know why there is such a big chimney middle right of picture


Comment by Art on 22nd August 2013 at 01:22
Could be the boiler chimney for the old phone exchange central heating next door, to the right..;o)


Comment by Peterrammy on 22nd August 2013 at 08:15
I worked in the telephone exchange the chimney is not part of the exchange ,it is part of the Crawford st building.


Comment by Art on 25th August 2013 at 01:18
Looks like Crawford St had more than enough chimneys. ;o)
Do you know the address of the "new" exchange Peter?


Comment by sanibelfred on 29th August 2013 at 18:13
A really good picture. reminds me of a French chateau. On my last visit to Wigan 12th to 25th aug I found a pub named the Anvil where they served Wigan Beer. I was told that this was brewed at a brewery which was located behind the large double doors shown in the photo. Any truth in this .?


Comment by Art on 1st September 2013 at 00:33
The Anvil (ex All Saints Tavern) is about 50 yards to the right of this pic, across Dorning St, corner of Hallgate
