1963. View from Whelley box, Rugby Club and car park, where I left my transport for each shift.

That'll be Dave Brown practicing on the car park. He used to spend most Saturday nights there after the game or the Saturday night disco. In fact someone thought he'd become a car park attendant when he left college because of the time he spent on it !

This photo is of great interest to many of the members at Wigan RUFC. Have you anything else with the ground on? I am sure that there would be a place for it in our Centenary brochure if you gave permission for us to use it.

Up to now Martin, I have just one, it is taken from this position with the club building being central in the picture. The format is 35mm. colour transparency.
