Photo taken by Andrew Darbyshire, in the 1960's he says it was taken in the Darlington Street area. He is looking for any information about the association or the location.

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

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.

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?
