He was also the architect for the Monument Mansion block of Art Deco stile Apartments on Wigan Lane
Ron - I posted the information as a Comment on one of your early Pendlebury's rebuild pics in September that the wedding was at St Nathaniel's Platt Bridge in 1924 - conducted by the bride's uncle, the Revd. G Belshaw. I assume that's him to her left above. I don't know who the other priest on the right might be. The Vicar of St Nat's at that time was Arthur Dean - but he was of slighter build than this man. Here's the entry from St Nat's Register:
Marriage: 16 Jul 1924 St Nathaniel, Platt Bridge, Hindley, Lancashire
John White Tate - 25, Architect, Bachelor, 249 Darlington St E Wigan
Edith Mary Belshaw - 25, Spinster, 72 Warrington Rd
Groom's Father: Alfred Tate, Draper
Bride's Father: James Belshaw, Grocer
Witnesses: Amy Tate; Alfred Tate
Married by Banns by G. Belshaw ( Off. Min. ) Vicar of St ? Bolton

The bride's mother doesn't look to happy?
They don’t look ‘bout money!
The mother of the groom looks like the old Queen Mary.
Oops! I meant the brides mother.
Veronica, was it Groucho Marx who said when asked by a reporter upon his arrival in Southampton following an Atlantic voyage from New York 'What do you think of the Queen Mary' his response was something like 'I don't know, I never met the Lady!'.
Lovely picture by the way.
Colin - Groucho’s last words….” Die my dear? Why that’s the last thing I’ll do”.
