Photo-a-Day (Saturday, 28th March, 2009)
Earl of Balcarres
Not bad photograph Harry. A little late. I took this pick in the 60s, Just before they removed Scholes off the map.You can find it in the archives of this site. As a lad I used to run errands for Joe Howard .He ran the hardware shop to the right of this pub.
Ron, I used to shop at Joe Howard's. I remember his Polish assistant not speaking good english.
Not his assistant, His wife.
Not late.A first-timer.No web in 1960's
In the 1960's it was the Balcarres
next door to howards was a paper shop woods i was a paper boy
I am just baffled has to what when the teenagers of WIGAN start to get to a stage where they they can't pop up WIGAN for they will be looked upon as an "oldie" then they wake up and all the pub's,club's are no longer there,what then?
Did paper shop blow away
