Best Car Park?

And beyond the allure of the car park it looks like we've got some pretty tasty speed cameras and traffic lights too.
It might be the best for its location
Do they have a giant feather duster for cleaning that giant Venetian Blind?
That eyesore of a building looks like it's been designed by a three-year-old and built of Lego.
There must have been a list of architects' plans submitted for this building. If this was the best , I shudder to think what the others looked like. Trendy 'wet behind the ears' just out of 'Art' College or wherever it is they learn their trade! I don't know what the building is....
Ps Is the building Itself a multi storey car park? I don't know where it is but the old buildings look vaguely familiar.
To the left of the car park was a firm of Accountants, L.A. Pardey’s & Co. I worked there as a secretary for many years, and the library across the road was a lovely building. King Street and Library Street were buzzing in the 1970s - this part of Wigan has changed drastically too.
Brian, this is a terrific composition. Best and cheapest car park - I think it could be! But - from an aesthetic viewpoint my eyes are drawn to the heritage buildings on the left, the new "lego" build (30 year lifespan PFI junk) centre-stage and the multi-storey on the right. Drab.
DTease, that's not a venetian blind. It is a built in ladder to assist would be burglars to the roof.
I have just realised the front of the building is on Library St. I didn't recognise it from this angle!
It's no wonder you can't differentiate between these modern buildings ... Old buildings had so much character you knew right away which they were and where you where! I suppose if you live in Wigan it's a different matter....
It's the new baths innit ?
Never been in the place since that memorable occasion when I was caught splashing and lost most of my free tea allocation tokens.
So it is Ozy, so it is.. Where lots of singing goes on I believe whilst the old folk swim...
'Some enchanted evening, you may see a stranger, across a crowded pool,
And somehow you know, there's always the danger,
Of swimming too close, you'll crash into some fool'....
Someone may be laughing, you may hear her laughing across a crowded pool'.....
