I AM making a special appeal to all my fellow member's of WIGAN WORLD and that is i am desperately seeking a photograph of a particular row/set of house's along ORMSKIRK ROAD HOUSE NUMBER 460 Pemberton ,Wigan The period being anything from 1945 thro to 1965 the section being for people who may have lived or know the area is from the corner of the vegetable shop going upwards towards Pemberton to be more accurate where the bargain booze shop is a matter of some 8 or so terraced two up two down dwellings i recall the last one up from the veg shop was a small typical grocer's shop of that era, the owners name was BAXTER'S aMR& MRS Baxter! MY reason for this plea is that having just had my family tree completed i now have just one last wish to cap it off and that would be the house i was born in ,i shall be eagerly looking for response's to this heartfelt request thank you in anticipation........GOLDEN BEAR !!!!!!!!
