The times I've waited here for a date and in the Vic when she was late!
And if seeing that taxi at the time, I would have said Times Square, lad!!


Comment by Anne on 7th March 2016 at 07:39
Always striking night pictures from Andrew and this is no exception.


Comment by Scholes Malc on 7th March 2016 at 07:53
good job on the 'Vic' but I preferred it red!


Comment by JJP on 7th March 2016 at 08:03
My Goodness ! fantastic photograph, wish I could take one half as good.


Comment by Helen of Troy on 7th March 2016 at 08:06
A good study, the background almost monochrome and then The Big Yellow Taxi and bright blue lights attracting your attention.

PS..remember the song Big Yellow Taxi ?


Comment by Aubrey on 7th March 2016 at 08:41
Good one.


Comment by Thomas(Tom)Walsh. on 7th March 2016 at 08:50
Good Photograph Andrew,the refurbishment of the Victoria is very welcome .It was a blot on Wigan,and often the first building seen by visitors to the town.
An interesting fact it was 2 separate pubs, The Victoria Hotel and The Victoria Vaults, run completely independently with different licensees . The enterance to The Vaults was the door on the side.

Great shot mate :)


Comment by Jod on 7th March 2016 at 09:31
Cracking image Andrew!


Comment by Syd on 7th March 2016 at 11:54
This really is pretty special, Great shot Andrew.


Comment by Garry on 7th March 2016 at 13:23
The best yet, and no tricks.


Comment by Vb on 7th March 2016 at 14:31
Very cheerful and the yellow cab and blue lights with a touch of red are very complimentary colours. Very lucky to get that combination in seconds!


Comment by Alex on 7th March 2016 at 16:21
Lets hope they keep the dole and benefit cheats out this time, they used to congregate in there. They would often be drunk and spoil it for decent people who want a quite drink. The Victoria is sutch a lovely pub.


Comment by christine on 7th March 2016 at 17:52
great shot ,is it ging to be a pub again ,heard it was going to be flats ?


Comment by Rachel on 7th March 2016 at 18:30
Makes me feel homesick for Wigan.
The last time I exited this station I was on my journey to see my lovely mum in your excellent hospice, Wigan has a lot to be proud of.


Comment by Lizziedownunder on 7th March 2016 at 20:41
Very nice shot Andrew..some nice colour pops....cheers!!!


Comment by Mick on 7th March 2016 at 21:31
The street look very clean so well done to the street sweepers and Wigan council


Comment by John Morris on 7th March 2016 at 22:19
Excellent shot Andrew, it looks better at night than it does in the daytime, especially at this time of year.


Comment by Alan on 8th March 2016 at 07:22
Wallgate station painted in Northen Rail colours.


Comment by Johnny on 9th March 2016 at 02:24
It wants to be a pub again, christine, then I can look out of the window with a Pina Colada in hand and reminice!! Watchin the ghosts of rendezvous long gone :-(
