Six shields in it I wonder what they represent

It has a similarity to Rennie Mackintosh's designs. It's very attractive.

Mick, ask the M.P. for Wigan, I'm sure they'll know!

I think that attractive is a good similie, Dorothy.

So many people walk down that arcade but how many look up.

Same all over Wigan, Linma. Some beautiful brickwork and windows if you look up, plus some white faces over the row where Max Spielmann's/ Gregg's bakers stand, (Market Place). xxxxx

If you look him up on Google Dorothy there is more to the quote. He was a very good water colourist as well. I saw a lovely painting of pink Peonies in a vase.
