No, it can't be Garry, as he had a thrupenny bit cabbed FG, and this is a Pagefield, way out of Garry's league, ( only joking mate, you know me ). The location remains a mystery however, but a logical guess would be up at Kirkless. I suspect the photo may be a promotional shot for either Wigan Coal and Iron, or the Pagefield motor company, but again, it's just a guess. All the best Garry.
