That is a very good photo Keith...don't they all look very arty.
I don't know why but I love this pic...I think it's the wording: "A rainy night in Library Street in 1961", and yet looking at the lads it's hard to believe it was taken 50 years ago! It makes me want to go back and follow them to The Bodega, and see Wigan as it was then, just once more. Fanciful maybe, but there's just something about it.
Thank you Irene and Maureen for your kind comments, I owe a lot to Wigan for my education. It held me in very good stead for my subsequent 40 years as an Art teacher.
