Photo-a-Day (Wednesday, 27th May, 2015)
The shop on the left The Pound Bakery ,was Grafton House ,Ladies Fasions, the opposite corner Makinsons tea and coffee retailers .
Wasn't that Hampsons Bakery?
Good view of Makinson
There are some plain looking photos but they can be really nice, this is one.
this picture is making me homesick,
Not many leaves on that tree for the time of the year, maybe it down to this cold wind we have been having.
Wigan the ghost town only one person in mack'ys arcade
We`ll soon be seeing the sandpit for children which is placed there in July and is located in the foreground of this photo!
Unusual view, Brian.
The times I've walked through the arcade!
I remember one Saturday afternoon standing at this entrance with a few mates having our photo taken with a monkey. The photographer wasn't keen when I suggested taking the monkey with us to Blackpool Mecca that night!
If it became necessary for a fire engine to be in that square how would it enter?
Everybody was in Liverpool that day.
Nice unobstructed piccy.
I can remember coming out of that end of the Arcade and seeing Lewis's and Cassinelli's ice-cream vans side by side. I can also recall Grafton House and a very pushy assistant trying to get me to buy a dress.
The smell of that coffee yonks ago was great.
Is Thorntons still on the opposite corner to the bakery?
Was my favorite choc shop 😃
Yes -Thorntons is still there.
I used take wife up theer once a month to have her clogged.
