I don't remember it looking like this when I went to the "Tech". Nice shot.

Recognised the author of this image before I saw the name! Superb shot Dave. Never been in the Town Hall - it looks fabulous.

A cracking shot, a master at work. The correct lens for the job. Great depth of field & sharpness through out. All verticals very well maintained. Great shot with a lot of thought gone into it. I love it

Fab, and interesting!

Excellent, Dave; was there a specific reason for taking it?
Have been up and down those steps many times when it was the Wigan and District Mining and Technical College.

Evokes a lot of memories
I guess such a degree of embellishment, reflects the aspirations of a TOWN investing in its future (education), as opposed to present times, when decisions are more likely to have emanated from state officials.

A stunning picture.

What a photo, just wonderful !
Can someone put me in the picture...excuse the pun...Is the Town Hall what was the Wigan Mining & Technical College ?
Comment by Helen on 6th December 2013 at 13:40
What a silly billy I am !
If I read the comments before & not after looking at the photo, I would have known where it was....sorry

WOW,they don`t make em like that anymore !! Super picture Dave.

No doubt, this is one of Wigan's best surviving buildings, funny the council haven't earmarked it for demolition!
Comment by Dave (Oy) on 6th December 2013 at 20:22
Thanks for the kind words folks :)
Ernest: My specific reason for taking it was looking at it and thinking "Ooooh that'd make a nice photo!"

The steps should have been cleaned first. Preperation is a must for good photos.
