So pleased to see that this part of Wigan, which I knew well as a youngster, has not been overlooked and is represented by these photos which bring back old memories.
It makes me wonder how many of the old outside toilets were still in use, at the time this photo was taken. ??
lived at no 25 Kirkless street until 1961 left at the age of 10 and moved to Beech Hill.We had 8 of us living in two bedrooms toilet outside it brings back memories of how bad housing conditions where and i for one was very happy to move out to a new house with bathroom and toilet it was great i dont think people should feel sorry to see the back of these houses.Yes as kids we enjoyed ourselves and played together outside winter or summer we did not know any better
