Splendid photograph - everyone has made an effort
I bet he is turning in his grave.The Carnegie at Spring Bank
has been closed and used for other purposes for years now. Sacriledge. At least they have not demolished it.... yet!!!!!
Does anyone know who anyone else is? Could that possibly be my g-grandfather William Wood behind the lady in white? I only have one grainy photo of him (published with his obituary) and it could be him. He lectured there and was headmaster at one point.
Chief Constable George Hardy, standing fourth from left.
George Hardy Chief Constable is my great grand father, and I thought I had seen all his photos, I have an extensive collection I am so delighted to see this. Many thanks for such a great site.
Personally, I would be fascinated to see all the "great and good" in Wigan named on this photo, which is now 110 years old.
