Josie, We got an engagement ring from your sister Pat when she worked at Wiers next to Burtons. She was sworn to secrecy and bless her she never said a word.
Ah memories eh?How great was Wigan then? The town went to pieces after the closure of Woolworths.It is becoming a ghost town now because of the white elephant aka The Grand Arcade.What a serious waste of money when the Galleries is 3 quarters empty and has been for years, and the outdoor market is almost non existant. And how about some decent toilets at the Library St end of town, instead of pavement cafes??...I'm sorry but it makes my blood boil
i agree wot a waste of money on the new galleries,it should hav been spent on doing the shops up,where Index was, all the shops r all shut in there, wot a waste
How did you manage to get a shot without 6 old codgers leaning on the Woolworth's railings. My Dad used to point them out to me as an example of idling. Now I'm an old codger myself.
