What a lovely picture. I could look at it again and again. Look at that shadow combined with the tower.. Magical Dave, Thank you..


Comment by Julie c on 13th September 2014 at 00:18
What time of day was this Dave?


Comment by Ken R on 13th September 2014 at 00:20
A rather dismal look in B&W. Life is in colour.


Comment by Alan (on Vancouver Island) on 13th September 2014 at 05:43
This is the most attractive photo I have ever seen on PAD. I left Wigan 43 years ago and this scene reminds me more of my home town than any other. I love black-and-white (and sepia) more than color (ooops, I mean colour), and the perspective of this photo is perfect. Thank you Dave (Oy), you have really made my day.

Plain monochrome, again!
Reminds me of a visit to the school room in `The Way We Were` which was in the building in centre of photo.
See:- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wigan_Pier
Extract:-
"A warehouse with covered loading bays, converted into a museum of Victorian life (often mistakenly thought to be Wigan Pier) and the home to The Way We Were museum, was part of the Wigan Pier Experience museum and exhibition centre. The exhibition featured a Victorian school room, a colliery disaster, the Second Boer War and (on the top floor) a complete pub transported from Hope Street and reconstructed by shopping centre developers. The Wigan Pier Theatre Company used these displays to remind present generations of "The Way We Were" not always a happy life.The attraction closed on 20 December 2007."

Ernest the best bit of the The Way We Were exhibition was the old man sat on the outside lav.

Mick; My last outside toilet was at No.1 Stratford St., Wigan which we left in 1936 to go to a brand new semi-detached house with all mod-
cons at 25 Queensway, Wigan.
See:-

for pocket-size history of toilet roll.


Comment by Mick on 14th September 2014 at 07:18
Our last one was where I was born 3 Church lane Shevington

Love it!


Comment by Roy on 14th September 2014 at 11:49
By gum Ernest you WERE posh in 1936. Nice photo Dave, i am from the B&W era and can appreciate it, as i can colour and sepia, etc. Carry on the good work.


Comment by Jemmy on 19th September 2014 at 14:26
B&W - its Like going back to the dark ages...
If you like B&W. Replace your colour TVs with B&W sets. Whilst you're at it. Throw out indoor toilets and reinstate outdoor bogs!
