Photo-a-Day (Wednesday, 6th March, 2013)
The Tippler once more, memories of yesteryear.
That's definitely a different view of the pier.
Wow right between those whatsits.....very bold Dan.....don't need any colour as black and white says it all.....album material....cheers!!!
Good tourist attraction.People will flock from miles away to see two bent and rusting rails and some rotting timbers and part of the cobble sett missing.Wheres Health& safety when you need them?Photo does not make it any better
peterp, people might be interested to see two bent & rusting rails, rotting timbers & cobbles...if there was an open museum close by that could show & explain what the rusting rails were used for...I just guessed what they might be for, I didn't know till I looked them up.
That is an excellent study Dan...
A little Blurred maybe, lets put more birds on photo-a-day, after all, its almost Spring.
We moaned went TVs and newspapers were in black and white...more colour is what we need!
"END OF THE LINE"
Anyone know if there are any photos of the original in existence?
I like your perspective, Dan & think b&w does it justice. Nice one!
Not a picture of Wigan Pier tippler but something similar, which gives a good idea of usage, can be seen at http://www.historyworld.co.uk/photo.php?id=965&offset=0&sort=0&l1=Work&l2=Mining
