This is the photo wrongly described as Scholes in Past Forward. Now with text from the same magazine four weeks later, pointing out the mistake made in the description earlier.
(especially for the doubters) ;o)

There are still some people who still won't accept it's Market Street. Whatever ptroof you have ( Check Anne M's posting on the original photo)
I think they are all members of the ,Flat Earth Society,

Has anyone any more details of this "Pilgrimage by petrol"? I would love to where it went and what effect it had.

Isn't it funny Ron, there isn't one of the disbelievers commented on this latest pic of Market St.
So, if one of you could come back & give a reason why you were so adamant, & in Ann M' case, insultingly so!
That would be nice. So: "Joe Joh, APLS, Barry Jo, & Anne M"

Bring it on..;o)

The silence from the scoffers and doubting Thomases is deafening.

Ron Hunt and Mick , why do you keep babbling on whether trams ran up scholes or not, PLEASE do us all a favour and change your tune, even the Rev joined in to something that was not revelant, I think the main question was that is this a picture of Market street,

Harry W Where on the comments on this photo, have I mentioned Trams and Scholes????
I can't wait for your reply as obviously I must need glasses as I can't see the words TRAM and SCHOLES , Can anyone else?

Ron Hunt, Get yourself a life, have you nothing better to do than forever sending comments in, the people who look at these pictures must be brassed of every time they see your name, have you no work or hobbies, PS, I could let you have a camera and a pedal bike which may help you get out more,

Hey John I am only replying to people who post derogatory remarks about me and other posters i.e. Art. Especially when we are right. Have you noticed none have replied???
And when you have contributed as much to this site as I, and many other people have. THEN you can tell me to get out on my bike with a camera. Can't see many of your contributions????

Ron Hunt, Your medal is in the post for all your contributions,sorry its only gold plated but you could give it a little polish before you send your contributions, you will not see many of my contributions as i am too busy with better things to do, like making a living for myself and family. I just like reading what the comedians put on.

FAO Ron Hunt..please please keep up the good work..i have a keen interest in local history, especially scholes where im from, and ive been using the wiganworld website for years and have enjoyed the countless photos you have uploaded on this site.Please ignore the nasty comments of people who dont know their facts and really have nothing better to do.

Comment by: RON HUNT on 11th November 2009 at 14:08

Hi Val thanks for your comments. It's nice to know that what I have contributed to the site is appreciated. I don't think people appreciate that my collection of Wigan post cards and memorabilia etc. I have collected over the years, have cost me quite a considerable amount of money. Which I am only to happy to share with other like minded Wiganers.
These Keyboard Warriors don't bother me, I like a bit of repartee Especially when I'm proved right <g>

Just like to add a comment about Ron. Known him since Tommy Linacre days - same class. His very positive views and dedication to Wigan is superb and should be applauded not have negative response. Pity other people WRT Wigan have not got his passion. Any negatives against his views are not worth looking at!

Comment by: RON HUNT on 12th November 2009 at 22:01

Hi Graham, not got your e.mail address since I got an e.mail from you saying your old address is obsolete. A few of us TLS boys are meeting up next Thursday. e.mail me

Definitely Market Street, I have an old postcard showing the same shops though looking in the opposite direction.

Is that not Market Street, Hindley. It looks like the top right hand corner could be the church
