Thanks Keith I was confusing the new Town Hall with Moot Hall!
I believe Veronica that no photograph of the Moot Hall exists, although there are illustrations. But there is a photo on the site somewhere that shows a very small portion of it.
Veronica, the only known photo of Moot Hall (a partial view) can be seen if you go to https://www.wiganworld.co.uk/album/photo.php?opt=5&id=23704&gallery=Market+Place%2C+Wigan&page=4
Thank you Keith, I have seen an engraving of the Moot Hall before, in fact I have a small print of a painting somewhere with it on. It's fascinating to think the old building of the Black Horse is still standing near the passageway to the Parish Church.
So they knocked the New Town Hall down and built toilets in it's place, ironic :)
