Apologies, got the date wrong. This is 1930s
I would think this is more like 1950, or before?
I agree with Ron, it is earlier. One of my school friends lived here and it was quite swish in those days
I don't remember the Minorca Hotel Restaurant next to the pub. Can anyone remember what was on the corner of Rowbottom Square next to the pub?
my brother john gilbert used to run the minorca in the early 70's, stable bar was on the king st side
Charnock is correct with his date,that is definitely not the 50's surely.
Hi Kevin, before the Restaurant, the building was a Stationery shop that was part of the Wigan Observer Company.
My great, great Aunt Olive Mee was in service at the Minorca Hotel in 1901.
The Hesketh family owned the Minorca in the 1800's.
My mother Jane Fairhurst worked at the Minorca as a barmaid probably in the 1950's.She had some very happy memories of working there. Sadly she died in 2011.
