Places (Help with places, streets and buildings in Wigan.)
As I remember things, the chippy was on the corner of Booths Brow Road and Rectory Road. There was a toffee shop at the other end of that row.
The Post Office moved to be more or less opposite the school. Before that it was on the same side, but a lot lower down Rectory Road. There was a phone box just outside. That was later moved to the corner opposite the school-
Daintys was on one corner, Annie Deacons opposite, and Tommy Turners on the third corner. I have a very vague memory that a house on the other corner was demolished.
The Co-op was down at the bottom end of Rectory, and Pies shop was opposite. Next to the Co-op was the butchers, ran at that time by Ray Doyle.
Am I correct, or is my memory playing tricks on me?
