Hello Kathryn, are you the one who worked at the bank with me and then I used to see you sometimes in St Williams church? If so, you've hardly changed at all from that photo. Hope you're keeping well!
How lovely to see the old shops on Ince Bar and the coac-built pram and tan-sads.
Yes Margaret it is the same Kathryn who worked at TSB. I remember you giving me a lift to work and seeing you at St Bills. Hope you are keeping well. I left the bank in 2001 and now work at wigan and leigh college.
were was this photo taken.the shop in the back ground says maggots and feeders as well as vasoline ?
I think it was the first row of shops on Manchester Road after the bus-stop near to Smithy Green. As you carried on walking you came to the Launderette pictured on another of the photos, then Grundy's, O'Neill's etc. I am willing to stand corrected on this, and feel Our Joseph might remember it better. He commented on the Launderette photo so hope he sees this.
incer seventy one(sorry i had to print the numbers, cant get comp to use the digits) this shop used to be the barbers shop, it was known as the "cripples", because he was crippled, not very nice but there was no malice meant then, i believe his name was ken, he drove a little bubble car and went to hospitals to cut hair and shave men.
