The gates in photo' are at Leyland Park, Hindley. The delivery boys are from each of Latimer's shops in the Wigan area, there was one in Hindley and one in Hindley Green. I had a similar bike, but with a small front wheel, when I worked at Hindley Co-op No7 branch, Hindley Green during the War

I also notice that the bikes were supplied by a Hindley Cycle agent, Bill Seddon, must have been pre-war because I watched the Park railings being cut down for scrap to help the war effort, (I think it was 1941)E.T.
