Photo-a-Day (Wednesday, 16th November, 2011)
Galleries Market Square
Interesting. Nothing on that pic was there when I lived in Wigan from the late thirties up to leaving in the early seventies. Although I lived there for forty years I bet I would get lost right away if I came back.
A lovely photo. Thank you.
Looks like a cold wet night in Wigan
Captured the atmosphere very well Beautiful photograph Thomas
Wigan outdoor market used to be very vibriant now can look like the photo during the day,cold and uninviting
Looks better at night than it ever does during the day!
Great photo.I think i would get lost there now too!Wish i was there..I would be interested to know where you were when you took it?
Trixie there is a gallery all the way round the market with shops along.Photo taken from left side of gallery looking across to indoor market
anybody who has been away from wigan for the last 20 years or so would have a job recognising the place
the people who run the borough have made a right dogs dinner of it
it is sadly one of the worst shopping areas around,
even Leigh has a better market and shopping centre than we have
Thanks peterp.i can see it now.
