Photo-a-Day (Monday, 19th January, 2015)
Nice one Mick.
What is it?
Interesting photo, Mick.
That bike is cluttering up the photo though..oooooops...
Very nice, Mick. A continental look. Also a change to see a cycle parked upright, youths today leave them lying on the footpath.
Maggie, I think it's where all of Wigan's philosophers (you know, the gangs of old guys who sit around in cafes and on benches in the town and surrounds) are expected to gather together and solve the world's problems for us.
Bound to be a roaring success!
What;s the bucket for' have they no inside loo.Or is it to fill his mug.
Mick, is that you. Good photo.
Nice picture Mick. Guy looks a bit like John Houston. Maybe the buckets a spittoon (ping) lol!
I remember young (me included)and old guys leaning on the rail on the corner outside Woolworths (Station Road) putting the world to right or just generally chatting or eyeing up the girls passing!
Nice pic Mick must patronise it some day!
MUCH prefer the Wigan Central
If that bike was a horse it would look like the wild west.
That isn't Mick Marie, he's Chris the bar owner, that bucket will be for the smokers to flick their dog ends in and not the street.
Trying to think of the name of the car sales that was there at one time, was it Cherrycroft Motors.
For those who hardly ever get out ,in the bucket is for water for dogs .
This was part of Mabs Cross Motors,a Vauxhall dealer.Well worth a visit if you are passing, always a good selection of real ale.Other sections of the building have been converted into a doctors surgery and a clinic
for Botox etc.
Quiet a variety!
It was at one time Mab's Cross Motors
The Wild West or a Spaghetti Western with Walter Huston sitting outside and Maggie Muscles and Harry Batt inside!! LOL
Cyril, thank you.
Giovanni, so you were one of those lads on Woolworth's corner, eyeing up the girls, were you? AND you remember Maggie Mussell, (who my Dad always called Margaret Moosell). You little tinker, you!
Guilty as charged, irene!! LOL.
It would have been late sixties and early seventies (I should have gone home) LOL. Maybe you got whistled at!! ;-)
THIS IS A BRILLIANT PHOTO.......wherever it is and whoever it is.THE MIND BOGGLES AT THE BOCKET..........new bike from santa was it MICK/?
