Photo-a-Day (Friday, 23rd January, 2015)
The top of Haigh seems to be a favorite place for P-O-D. There used to be a Blacksmiths Smithy through that archway, took the pony there for shoeing a few times.
when I lived in aspull 1972-1999 I never new that shop as a working shop yet it as kept its shop front.?
Good one of the railings.The shop looks shut.Whats behind the green door , or is it pale blue.
It's the old Post Office, only the post box remains.(next to the car) See P-a-D 18 May 2010.
It a Post Office for many years Joe.
I think it was the Post Office and was painted red.
Irene all Post offices are Red.
It was the old post office. See the post box on the wall painted rosso.
that was post office/general store till about early 80,s. i was in cubs and scout at st.davids (aspull and haigh) 1969-77 and used to go all time. also there was vmrs browns shop just further down opposite red lion
Giovanni, the paint is called Post Office Red.
Garry, all post-BOXES are red. Post OFFICES merely have a red sign over the door. Type Wigan Post Office into Google Images and have a look at our lovely Town Post-Office, built of a very pleasing shade of brick with white window-frames and a wooden door.
Post offices are Red, Post Office Vans are Red, Post Office HGVs are Red, Post office Post Boxes are Red.
It's the Groups Livery...And the paint's called POST OFFICE RED.
Ah that's where I go wrong I thought a red light meant Post Office. Thought those lasses were a bit under dressed.
I do like that picture mick
Thats what I said or wrote!!
Rosso is Italian for Post Box Red!!!
Or it could be vermillion, crimson or scarlet. Mama mia!!
Does anyone else on here feel like screaming, or is it just me?
Paint code for Post Office Red-
Giovanni, this is Wigan in the UK, not Italy, anyway Rosso red is a different shade than Post Office red.
The code for Rosso red is D40000.
Irene, and me.
Garry, contrary to your apparent belief, I am a woman of some intelligence. Thankyou for your information but I was well aware of Post Office Red Paint, and of the colour of post-boxes, phone-boxes and Postman Pat's van, not to mention his helicopter; I merely pointed out that Post Offices have a red sign outside, but the building and its doors and windows are not necessarily painted red. There is one on Wigan Lane that is green......door, window-frames, shutters and all, but the little red sign tells people it is a Post Office. Thankyou so much for the code for Post Office Red Paint; I'm sure that will come in handy if ever I feel like painting the town red.
Irene,yes but dont we all know that the man is always right??!!!Sometimes better to agree with them to let them think that anyway !!!!
Irene,if ever you do paint the town red..can I come with you
Thankyou Neil, Aubrey, Giovanni, Maureen and Jean. You are all welcome, (Garry too}, to paint the town red with me, but no whistling at me on Woolworth's Corner, Giovanni, you little tinker, you!
was it a bluey/purpley colour not long
back when it was the emporium selling sweets ,snacks and drinks etc. i cant recall the colour code for it.
Include me to paint the town rosso!
I'll bring a brush for irene!!LOL
Where shall we start? Garrys house!!
Boltons undertakers is up that nick thats behind the mini car
Garry wrong again regarding post office red paint, just brand names, pillar box red, post office red etc, the royal mail do use a specific B.S. colour for the boxes though, http://www.news.postboxesukltd.co.uk/tag/ral-pillar-box-red
With all this about Post Offices, I have forgotten to say how much I like the photo! Where are the railings, Mick? At first I thought they must be near The Balcarres or that lovely little school on Copperas Lane, but now I think it may be the church gate you were standing behind.
Ok, everyone seems to be ganging up on me again. I may have POSTED the wrong intention and shown my true COLOURS. But I was just trying to educate some posters that's all.
It's a subject I knew about in my younger days. I love everyone on here really, there's some clever and interesting people who I admire with affection. I know we don't know each other personally, but we all have one thing in common, we all love WW and are a great team together.
fair point Garry. and you are right about WW.
Thankyou Garry; that was a nice thing to say, and we can now shake hands.
Awww...Isn't that nice.
WW is a great site! Its all harmless banter anyway.
No harm done and no offence!
Grazie Garry for your humility.
Do we really need the likes of Garry on here, he'll be at it again tomorrow. If we all did a vote, he'd be voted out.
See the some of the ladies have give in to Gary, AGAIN.
I don't think I gave in....I certainly put him straight on the fact that I am not going to be spoken down to.....if anyone gave in it was Garry, and I hope I am fair-minded enough to accept, if not an apology, his acknowledgement that he spoke without really thinking. I don't think Garry is a bad person, and yes, he WILL do it again, but I think he has a sense of humour under all that bluntness.
What has Garry supposed to have done? I don't think he's spoken down to anyone. Can we not assume Garry could be absolutely spot on with his comments.
Do what again...put him straight...
can't see nowt wrong with Gary's predictions only that he is spot on.
Alan, vote Garry out? Absolutely outrageous!! Garry hugely enriches this forum and long may he tell it as he sees it. Hope you will continue Garry.
Vote Garry out? if it weren't for him their'ed be less comments. You don't seriously want him out..... He brings the site to life...it's never dull when he's about!
Are we looking at the same forum, Julie? He enriches WW...how do you come up with that assumption?
Thank you Ann, GPO and Julie.
To answer your question anteater at 21:55. Emporium means: A wide variety of goods...and the colour code ad3e96. Lets not try and be too clever.
WHATEVER HAPPENED TO DIRTY hARRY!!
Nothing happened to him Jean. he's commented on P-a-D 15 Jan.
