what is the history of this building? I remember the front at the old 'gas showrooms' but what was it before that?

One of Wigan's landmark buildings that the council have (so far) failed to demolish.

Ellen; this photo is taken in Parsons Walk and is the side of the building. The front of the building is in New Market St. opposite to the Galleries which you can see to the right and are on the Old Market Square.
