This picture, taken about 1960 when I was 12 years old, was from one our regular visits to Southport which was a 1 hour bus ride from Orrell Road, Orrell/Pemberton. We would leave on a Saturday or Sunday morning about 10:30, spend a few hours in Southport and return about 3:30-4:00 and be home in time for tea.

Its OK to take a copy Ken. There is already a photo of my mother (and father uploaded by Barry) at http://www.wiganworld.co.uk/album/photo.php?opt=5&id=11717&gallery=Pemberton&offset=40 My dad looks very similar to this latest photo, therefore so would my mum.

Great Picture of Dad and Lad from an era when folk took pride in their appearance not like the sluvvins you see today in their regulation track suits, hoodys and trousers hanging around their bum with the underpants showing (whats all that about)
