The Boro fish and chips cafe in Millgate which was closing down in December 2004.
Left of the picture is the cobbled road leading to Whalley's pet shop which was also to close down due to the Grand Arcade development.

Lost forever and what for, the Grand Arcade that nobody likes.
Poor Wigan what have they done to you.

At least we can look at it and wallow in the memories. Thank Heaven for Frank Orrell! Fantastic makes me feel like it's still there and I can just walk in and get a bag of chips.
