Photo: RON HUNT   Item #: 32375  
  An advert, in a recently acquired Wigan Warriors Speedway programme re. the forthcoming event the Personal Appearance of Laurel and Hardy to the Poolstock Track on the 13th September 1947
If anyone has any Wigan Speedway Programmes, or memorabilia. I'll pay the going rate for anything you want to sell. I am in the process of putting together a "TALK" on the "History of Speedway in Wigan" which I will be giving to the Local History Society when we get back to some sort of NORMALITY.

I was at Poolstock when Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy made trip round the track on the back of an open topped top car. I think they did 2 laps and then they left.

Alan I don't suppose you have a photograph of the occasion? There is one going around purportedly taken at Poolstock showing Ollie and Stan with some other people stood at the side of the track, but it's now been proved, unfortunately,that it was taken at the Bristol track the week later..

My Mum & Dad saw Laurel and Hardy at Belle Vue in the early 1950's. Around about the same time they saw Jussi Bjorling at Kings Hall, Belle Vue.
