This is a brilliant painting..it really gives you the
atmosphere of a once lovely Wigan market...memories.
Doesn't show the rat infested interior though.
Sorry David but my memories do not extend to the goings on behind any facade..all I can say is..I didn't see any, and I'm sure most people's memories aren't of any rats either.
Rats or no rats it was always buzzing around the market and you were always certain to 'bump' into old friends and neighbours. It's a shame the market hall could not have been refurbished. In place of what is there now is a 'cut through' to the bus station. The market now is just a shadow of what was.
To David , I worked in market 20 yrs that included working in the cellars , never saw a mouse never mind a rat in all that time ,so do not believe the Hans Anderson story tellers , they should try and get themselves a life ,
