I vaguely remember it. I think it was around where the Law Court building is today???
Ron/Alan, keep watching Wigan Album, am trying to download a letter re the above, the office was at 37 Darlington Street.
this was next to, or very near a big toy shop on Darlington St
I think it was named Callands ??
It was located about 3/4 shops past Harrogate St, on the left going from the town centre.I remember it in the 40's
I remember it well as our shop was two doors away at 33 Darlington St.
This window is in the Museum collections in Wigan. It is going to be professionally photographed for the Museum of Wigan Life's top 50 objects soon.
So pleased to see this photo, my Grandad (George McNamara) was the secretary of the Weavers, winders, Reelers & Beamers in the 1920s/30s.
Refer to pictures of Makerfield mill where I posted a picture of the weavers winders reelers and beamers union tie
Andrew. I wonder if I could have a copy of the photograph of the Wigan Weavers Office. I am giving a talk about the Wigan Weavers and would love to use it as an illustration. If you decide to allow it would you send it via amail please?
