Photo-a-Day (Monday, 12th March, 2007)
Smiths of Wigan
I'm sure that should be "Mesnes Street" Coffe Shop LOL!
The big red frog mural on the wall also says Main St - never noticed that before.
I think someone placed their sign order over the phone :-)
your photos are brilliant keep them coming, and everyone elses. I emigrated to NZ last year, lasted 5 months, missed Wigan so much your piccies kept me going.
Thanks Jo - I'm all warm and fuzzy now :-)
hello to all again.!!!
just requested password to go back on the forum.
to clarify, Main Street was chosen on purpose as Wiganers pronounce Mains street and not Mes-nes street.
The idea came from an old friend, Barbara Calderbank and I thought it was great....
Coffee shop doing very well....
In fact, the Grand Arcade opened this week and on Saturday, we registered our highest taking....
People are running away from the noise and want peace.....
Well - I for one have used "Main Street" cafe a few times and I like it. Despite the iffy name :-)
i think that "Main street" cafe is meant to be play on words!. i think it looks better than mesnes
I quite enjoyed going in here for coffee shame it closed!
