Couldn't wait for these blokes to come and empty the meter as Mum used to give me a bit of the rebate and I used to save it till saturday then I could get some ex-jukebox records from outside the market hall. Happy days.

Charlie Greenhalgh (my Dad) is in the middle, the one to the left of my Dad is Jack Farrimond and the one on the right end is Charlie Bradley. Don't know the name of the man on the left hand side.

Wigan Market Square possibly in the 1960s. The Ormerod building behind was occupied by Moss school of dancing. It became Whelan's discount store in 1967, and later Morrisons in 1978. Hope Street Methodist, church was demolished, long before Morrisons in 1986 for the new Galleries redevelopment.
