Photo-a-Day (Saturday, 4th November, 2023)
Not sure where I am Brian.....is that taken from where the underground toilets were ? Going down to Wallgate on the right ?
Good photo Brian, and I can still, in my mind, see the old underground toilets that used to be on that spot. Are they still there, I wonder, under the ground? When we attend 1940s events, there is often a mock-up butcher's or greengrocer's van showing how they used to go round villages selling their produce on certain days of the week. Now we have no Morrison's or Marks and Spencers selling meat in the town centre, and there are no butchers' stalls left in the Market, except the pork butchers, and here we are buying meat off a van. What goes around comes around. I hope the butchers van does well, as with the fish van that is sometimes on the market square; they are filling a need and good luck to them. I just hope those buildings in the background won't come under the demolition hammer.
What a brilliant idea. ‘Needs must when the devil drives ‘….
Fill a gap with a lorry load of beef …there’s already travelling Fishmongers.
Fresh quality meat, that's a con for start, fresh meat should be fresh and never have been frozen.
If you want proper fresh meat, try eating Halal meat.
The fish van is there every Friday from 8am.
Yes Helen, The toilets were to the right. From the TUI travel agent to the
right is Market Street, and beyond the butchers van is top of Wallgate.
It’s a sad picture when you compare it to others in the past. What a vibrant hub of the town that area was, until it was flattened by the council.
Typical Wigan scene NO people
Unless PeterP, you count the 8 people in this single shot......
Gareth I will rephrase my comments a typical Wigan scene nearly devoid of people
There's schh you know who, wearing them shoes - £9.99 at Timpsons and on his bike delivering Pizzas!
Well I much prefer the traditional butchers shop, but a mobile butchers is just as good I suppose.
In my opinion, better food than that cyclist is carrying on his bike.
Junk Food for lazy people who don't want or who can't cook good protein food full of narishment.
Ever been behind these food cycles on the road, they've no road sense at all. They go through lights on red, no hand signals, in and out of traffic. They are ablivios to danger.
