I await a reply..
Why can't they be gracious in defeat, and hold their hands up to say they were wrong???
But I ain't holding my breath<g>
my nan used to tell me about remembering waiting for a tram on wigan road, aspull with her mother when she was very young and paying a penny to go into wigan town centre.
This shot appears on page 90 of EK Stretch's 'The Tramways of Wigan', (Manchester Transport Museum Society, 1978). Another illustration shows a tram in WW1 with ASPULL on the blind. He gives the fare to Aspull from Market Place in 1908 as 3d (Workmen, 1.5d). A large map at the back shows the line went down Library Street,along Rodney Street, across Millgate, over Scholes Bridge, and up Scholes, Whelley, and Wigan Road to Terminate at the Moorgate Inn.
I don't think we should hold our breath waiting for an apology or admission, Ron.
Hello Ron.. and Mick
I have noticed one or two rude and aggressive posts on here lately. I hope it will not stop you posting more interesting pictures.
A saying comes to mind ... and forgive me if I mis quote this.... Better to say nothing and look a fool, than to open your mouth and prove it !!!! Are these people REALLY Wiganers ??????????
Thank you for the pictures.
Keep smiling and keep up the good work
Were did all these people who lived in these houses move to?...lol
Probably moved to the council estate when they built it?
Is nt that a trolley bus not a tram .....but I might be wrong...that's how it's got up from Wigan
