Photo-a-Day (Thursday, 5th April, 2018)
This is a Sunday morning, and you can see one of the residents who looks like he is nipping out to McDonald's to buy breakfast, dressed in a dressing gown and bedroom slippers
a great snapshot of Wigan life.
I lived in Kingsway which is the second street on the right hand side until 1958 . We used to play football and tick rugby in The Grove. Only one resident had a car, Mr Evans at number 30. We gave him a push start many times. No chance of playing any games now.
Lad ....'Dad t'car won't start'....
Dad ....'Worrav I towd thee abeawt revving it up!' 'Where's mi slippers'?
Mam ..'.Put mine on - I've chucked um in't bin - stinking t'house out!
Brilliant, Veronica! Alan H, I remember Kingsway. I lived in Ince Green Lane. I remember The Grove but not with that many cars!
Well done Veronica.... every picture tells a story
Having made the man at the car a main subject of the photo by your caption I presume that you have obtained his permission to publish, and a "model release form"
Un dad, when tha gets car gooin' there's a mon up theer us sez con he Tek thi picture.
Oh Mick please go away from here, passing judgement on just about anyone who is unfortunate to get snapped by your nosey lens, if you ever snapped me i'd wrap that sodding camera around your neck.
Ivor,he'll slate anybody that lives on a council estate, he thinks he's a cut above. he should see his G.P. really.
I Agree Susan, He's rude, ignorant, a racist, a bigot, sexist, snobbish, the list goes on and on.
Give over you two, its a pic of life in Wigan that probably reflects life in many other places...take it as it comes, its not a slight on anybody.
Helen,you haven't known him so long have you,put a photo on and see his negative reply...he hates council house tenants .Watch this space.
Helen,have a look at today's P.A.D,and see how he spoke to Irene,
Worst than all those things ivor biggun mentioned, he propably believes the Government is a compassionate and caring one.
Notice St Catharine's spire is nice and straight.
