Thank you so much Graham - my grand parents lived next to the shop (340) in the 1960's - 1970's and I have been after a clear photo of the house for years - thanks so much

Whereabouts on Wigan road was this taken? Was it Rose hill end? I can't remember anywhere else on Wigan road that wasn't garden fronted.

I remember Echo margarine, John. I think the sign over the shop though is for the Echo newspaper.

Hi again Graham

Do you have any more pics around Bryn Cross?

I think that is Mrs Cook: the figure half cut-off, extreme right.
