Coal miners (note the lanterns and the pick) dressed in their Sunday best, some, if not all are from Wigan. The name W.T. Moss is written on the back. He was the husband of my great Aunt Elizabeth and they lived on Canal St. in Wigan. He was listed as a collier on his marriage cert. I believe the picture was taken before 1918.

Photo taken at: Herbert Lord, The Studio, Clifton Street, Blackpool.
