A Wigan Observer special front page with glorious colour pictures of the fascinating Apollo 11 mission back in 1969. Now 50 years later, the thrill of it all remains and the paper were proud to recall in full colour the magnificent historic trip by Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins.
These colour pictures among the first to be published in this country, were processed in the United States before being flown to England. The Wigan Observer were only the 3rd in the country to print colour by Web offset, at the new works, Woods Street, just off Wallgate.
