In 1948, I had a brand new van, I was delivering bread & cakes to Morton's stall in the Market, I had clipped the back doors open to the sides of the van and I was parked near the pillars that held up the canopy in this picture. The two hanging lamps had long gone, as I drove away I had left the back doors open, the nearside one hit the pillar and the door was all crumpled up. My boss was not amused.
When the market hall was demolished my brother got a couple of pillars to fit in his house when he knocked the wall through to make one large room and the pillars made a lovely feature.
Sadly another beautiful building demolished by Wigan council
