Places (Help with places, streets and buildings in Wigan.)
I think (and I stress the word 'think') that the Horrocks family owned the shop opposite the Majestic Cinema in Sefton Road Orrell, which was very near to Tontine.
The Horrocks shop only sold soft drinks (Dandelion & Burdock, Lemonade etc).
It was frequented by people who were against the drinking of alcohol - Methodist etc.
There was a name for those types of shops, but I can't recall what it was.
