Photo-a-Day (Wednesday, 4th June, 2014)
Lily Lane, Platt Bridge
Then and now..lovely, thanks Andrew.
I like that Andrew
Interesting composition, I assume that you are melding the old with the new street line to show what?
Fascinating photo.....well done !
What a clever photo, nice one Andrew.
Oh I love now and then...more please!
that's very clever!It will bring back memories for many I'm sure.
Notice the spelling on the old photo. Was that the right spelling then.
Very clever, Andrew.
Look at the old road condition...and we talk about the 'Good Old Days'.
Great idea very well executed, Andrew, well blended too.
Garry, you missed the opportunity to use your favourite word correctly this time, SUPERIMPOSED, because this is the technique Andrew has used to great effect!!
Regarding the spelling, The farm a bit farther up in Bamfurlong is spelt Lilly Land Farm so proberbly like a few streets in Wigan they had their name changed slightly, just depends on the ordinance survey maps.One very good example is the bridge near the Balmoral pub in Hindley it is called Bosden Bridge on the OSM but the Borsdane Brook runs under it .
Love the photo(s) always wondered where the tram lines were,easy to see on the old photo... .
Tram lines Fred.
That's a brilliant photo Andrew,wish we could see more of them.
Another camera trick,
WHAT is wrong with some people????
Every photograph isn't a true reflection of what people see, with different lenses, filters, shutter speeds etc. etc. GET A LIFE Thank GOD I never worked at the same places as you people did. I bet you were a Barrel of Laughs. No doubt moaning to the boss every five minutes. ITS A PHOTOGRAPH and very imaginative one at that. Well done.
Brilliant, wish it was on of the streets i remember fron the 40's and 50's
Very good Andrew, nice to see a photo of Platt Wazz, does anybody know why it's called Platt Wazz
Nice one Andrew.
Well said Billy bunter.great photo (again) Andrew.
We oldies like to see the "oldie" photo`s.Well done Andrew`
An excellent idea superbly executed. Well done Andrew. I have written a timetravel novel called Timegate and used a similar but less adventurous idea for the cover when I published it on Kindle.
Is that the corner (on the left) where the cinema was?
Its called the Photo a Day not whos best at manipulating a photo
Another cracking picture Andrew of the old and new...Very well presented!
Hi Beryl. You are quite right there was a sweet shop on the corner.I think a lady by the mame of Hill kept it, and next to the shop was the Miner's Hall cenema where I used to go some Saturdays.
I remember both the old and the new, having attended Holy Family School in the 1930s and 40s. A well composed photo Andrew !
Past and Present.
I don`t like it!
Ernest,you have surprised me!
If the boss puts it on the site as PHOTO-A-DAY then, End Of. MICK.. GET A LIFE.
