Takes me back to the sixties. I used to live in Bentinck Street, just off the picture.

served behind the bar there when my Uncle was steward for a while - Walkers Best Bitter 10 pence a pint! now they put it up by 10p!

Correct Malc, our clubs ale went up 10p a pint earlier this month. A local landlord put Wainwrights cask up 10p twice in three weeks, it only took him a few days to realise his mistake and back down it came. Happy memories for me in that area, in 1965 i married the landlords daughter from the The Bulls Head (recently demolished) which, as some of you will know, was across the road from the club.

Great Saturday nights with "PIES HAVE COME" "BINGO" and some excellent Artists local and across the region!

One night, the great Shirley Bassey's act was interupted when the meat pies arrived!
In all fairness, she scoffed a couple with a glass of bitter!

I really had to look at this photo to try to work out where it was! I was brought up in Marus Bridge but haven't been back to Wigan for a couple of years. It's changed a lot round there.

Catherine, I,m with you . I am grateful to WW to tell me where I am. How the Wigan I knew has changed. To provide jobs housing and services but at what cost. Soon WW will be the main history map of Wigan.

It was definitely a challenge for recognition as far as I'm concerned,had to closely study this one. The changing face of Wigan, I'd better be doing a other visit across the pond before it all disappears!
