Are these to become bars/restaurants etc? Look to be smarter than what was.

There's always been some sort of shops in the old railway arches, fishers carpets was there.

I was told the middle one is going to a Ann Summers erotic lingerie shop

Erotic Lingery! in Wigan's climate? I think the good ladies of Wigan should stick to their traditional woolly vests and long winter drawers. There's too many cowd draughts in Wigan for erotic lingery!

I heard it was going to be an automatic laundry shop in summer.

I'm going to wear my Harvest Festivals until at least May, DTease....."all is safely gathered in"!

Yes it's certainly too cold to linger about in 'lingery' especially underneath the arches. 'Ne'er cast a clout till May is out'!

It's nothing of the sort dtease.

Irene, Veronica, I bet you will know this. What did ETBs stand for? I know what they were but what did the letters ETB stand for?

Comment by: Veronica on 12th March 2018 at 22:00

Have googled the letters and can only come up with Educational Traning Boards! Somehow I don't think that's right Dtease....the mind boggles.

Comment by: irene roberts on 12th March 2018 at 22:08

Not a clue, DTease....don't keep us in suspense!

Comment by: DTease on 12th March 2018 at 23:46

Irene, Veronica, I'm told that it stood for Elasticated Tops and Bottoms. Better known by the women who served in the Services during the war as "Passion Killers"

Comment by: Veronica on 13th March 2018 at 07:41

We 're not that old Dtease but I have heard of 'passion killers'! And can remember the days before 'tights' just about!

DTease, Veronica and I are only slips of girls, you know!
