Photo-a-Day (Saturday, 8th July, 2017)
I suspect Mick's bike.
Funny init, Wigan pier was all refurbished in the 1980s and now run down again, I suspect.
Looks a bit sinister to me this picture!
Nice to finally put a face to the man on the bike
What is that pile of scrap metal?Also the trip hazard at the side of the rails.
Is that a selfie Mick?
I always wonder if they modeled the mill worker statue on one of the local Wallgate women.
Mick,she looks more like a Chinese woman to me.lol
Typical of a nasty Mick comment.
I don't know who the statue was modelled on but it certainly doesn't look like a woman- least of all a woman from Wallgate! It does not compare to any of the Mill girls in the photographs on Album, in fact it is an insult to suggest its a woman at all.
Would have been better if you'd got the whole of the pier in. Or called it "Half of Wigan Pier"
Reason I did it that way Dave is because there was a horse pulling a old fashioned barge just out of view on the left waiting for me to take the snap, so I rushed it a bit.
You should have taken the barge too, this would have brought the Pier to life.
