Then and now..lovely, thanks Andrew.


Comment by David Fairclough on 4th June 2014 at 00:06
I like that Andrew


Comment by Ken R on 4th June 2014 at 00:08
Interesting composition, I assume that you are melding the old with the new street line to show what?


Comment by Alan (on Van Isle) on 4th June 2014 at 00:25
Fascinating photo.....well done !


Comment by Jack on 4th June 2014 at 01:29
What a clever photo, nice one Andrew.


Comment by Alan on 4th June 2014 at 08:04
Oh I love now and then...more please!
Thanks Andrew.


Comment by Jenny on 4th June 2014 at 08:31
Excellent!


Comment by kath on 4th June 2014 at 08:47
that's very clever!It will bring back memories for many I'm sure.


Comment by Anne on 4th June 2014 at 08:48
Notice the spelling on the old photo. Was that the right spelling then.
Excellent Andrew.


Comment by Fred Mason on 4th June 2014 at 09:10
Very clever, Andrew.

Look at the old road condition...and we talk about the 'Good Old Days'.


Comment by Jod on 4th June 2014 at 09:13
Great idea very well executed, Andrew, well blended too.
Garry, you missed the opportunity to use your favourite word correctly this time, SUPERIMPOSED, because this is the technique Andrew has used to great effect!!


Comment by Colin Barnes on 4th June 2014 at 10:07
Regarding the spelling, The farm a bit farther up in Bamfurlong is spelt Lilly Land Farm so proberbly like a few streets in Wigan they had their name changed slightly, just depends on the ordinance survey maps.One very good example is the bridge near the Balmoral pub in Hindley it is called Bosden Bridge on the OSM but the Borsdane Brook runs under it .


Comment by Maxine on 4th June 2014 at 10:46
Love the photo(s) always wondered where the tram lines were,easy to see on the old photo... .


Comment by Harry C. on 4th June 2014 at 10:54
Tram lines Fred.


Comment by Maureen on 4th June 2014 at 11:00
That's a brilliant photo Andrew,wish we could see more of them.


Comment by Mick on 4th June 2014 at 11:44
Another camera trick,


Comment by Billy Bunter on 4th June 2014 at 12:38
WHAT is wrong with some people????
Every photograph isn't a true reflection of what people see, with different lenses, filters, shutter speeds etc. etc. GET A LIFE Thank GOD I never worked at the same places as you people did. I bet you were a Barrel of Laughs. No doubt moaning to the boss every five minutes. ITS A PHOTOGRAPH and very imaginative one at that. Well done.


Comment by Mags on 4th June 2014 at 12:48
Brilliant, wish it was on of the streets i remember fron the 40's and 50's


Comment by A.W. on 4th June 2014 at 12:49
Very good Andrew, nice to see a photo of Platt Wazz, does anybody know why it's called Platt Wazz


Comment by David on 4th June 2014 at 13:36
Nice one Andrew.


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 4th June 2014 at 13:46
Well said Billy bunter.great photo (again) Andrew.
We oldies like to see the "oldie" photo`s.Well done Andrew`


Comment by irene roberts on 4th June 2014 at 14:05
Wonderful! Thankyou.


Comment by John Morris on 4th June 2014 at 14:10
An excellent idea superbly executed. Well done Andrew. I have written a timetravel novel called Timegate and used a similar but less adventurous idea for the cover when I published it on Kindle.


Comment by Beryl on 4th June 2014 at 14:58
Is that the corner (on the left) where the cinema was?


Comment by Mick on 4th June 2014 at 15:20
Its called the Photo a Day not whos best at manipulating a photo


Comment by A bolton on 4th June 2014 at 15:37
Another cracking picture Andrew of the old and new...Very well presented!


Comment by tom on 4th June 2014 at 16:55
Hi Beryl. You are quite right there was a sweet shop on the corner.I think a lady by the mame of Hill kept it, and next to the shop was the Miner's Hall cenema where I used to go some Saturdays.


Comment by Andrew on 4th June 2014 at 20:02
Thanks folks!


Comment by ann21 on 4th June 2014 at 20:47
Andrew. Brilliant.


Comment by Steve on 4th June 2014 at 21:23
I remember both the old and the new, having attended Holy Family School in the 1930s and 40s. A well composed photo Andrew !


Comment by dave on 4th June 2014 at 21:49
Brilliant.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 4th June 2014 at 22:47
Past and Present.
I don`t like it!


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 6th June 2014 at 10:19
Ernest,you have surprised me!


Comment by Billy Bunter on 6th June 2014 at 12:09
