Michael Marks of Marks and Spencer fame , lived in Wigan sometime after 1894 ,after living in Leeds and before moving to Manchester. Has anybody got any infromation as to where in Wigan he lived.
M&S have along history in Wigan, starting with a bazaar in Makinsons Arcade.
How efficient are Wigan council.
It was only a few weeks ago that the dead trees where removed now a few weeks later nice new ones are going in.
Well...Wigan doesn't look to have changed much from that angle. Is the road pedestrianised now ? They look as if they are planting the trees in what was the road, remember the road as being very wide back in the early 50's
I saw the Queen plant a tree once. She only used a spade.
Helen - the road is now pedestrianised however you can drive up there after 4pm (it's gated)
Helen the road is a pedestrian zone from 10-30am till 4-00pm
Nice to see Standishgate being given a new lease of life .
I like your sense of humour Ron D
Maggie K, I din't know Ron D had a sense of humour...
It's almost 50 years since I lived in Wigan, but when I look at this picture, I really miss it!!
