How lovely. Doesn't everyone look happy and didn't they have something to celebrate?!

Margaret Wall - are you from Scholes? Daughter Linda?

No Mrs M, I was born and bred in Lower Ince but now live in Appley Bridge. I do have fond memories of the Scholes area though. I used to go to St Pat's church occasionally, even though I was a St Williams parishioner really. Happy times!

I WAS GIVEN PERMISSION TO PUT THIS PHOTOGRAPH ONTO WIGAN WORLD BY BILL. DORAN, WHO LIVED WITH HIS FAMILY IN STANLEY STREET SCHOLES AT THE TIME IT WAS TAKEN.THE ARROW IS ABOVE HIS MOTHER.I THOUGHT IT WAS WORTH HAVING THIS PHOTO. ON THE WIGAN WORLD SITE I AM SURE IT WILL BE OF INTEREST TO A LOT
THE RESIDENTS AT THE TIME.
